JinkoSolar has announced a new world record for n-type solar cell efficiency, at 26.4%. The achievement has been confirmed by China's National Institute of Metrology, making it the seventh time that Jinko has raised the bar for n-type cell efficiency with its tunnel oxide passivated contact (TOPCon) technology. The record surpasses Jinko's previous achievement of 26.1%, announced in October. Jinko developed a hydrogenation process in collaboration with R&D partners, which was key to the achievement, alongside ultrafine metallization, an advanced diffusion process, and various material upgrades.
