Solar cell with transparent passivate contact achieves 23.99% efficiency

German scientists have built a solar cell with ultra-thin transparent layers that are claimed to be effective in preventing recombination events. The technology, which has the potential of achieving efficiencies close to 26%, may be easily scaled up for commercial production, according to the researchers.

German researchers increase open circuit voltage of perovskite solar cells to 1.26 volts

The voltage is key to improving efficiency, the scientists say. It indicates how much energy is lost within the cell through ‘recombination processes’.
