Thin-Film Approach and Monochromatic Laser Light Set Mark for Photovoltaic Cell Efficiency
Thin-Film Approach and Monochromatic Laser Light Set Mark for Photovoltaic Cell Efficiency
Researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE have achieved a conversion efficiency of 68.9% for a III-V semiconductor photovoltaic cell based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) exposed to laser light of 858 nm. The mark is reportedly the highest efficiency yet achieved for the conversion of light into electricity.
