Marks Highest Efficiency for a Back Contact Silicon Solar Cell CHANGZHOU, China, Feb.
A new system from researchers at MIT looks use sunlight to heat a high-temperature material that then radiates an optimal wavelength of energy into a conventional photovoltaic cell.
Organic solar cells have long been touted as lightweight, low-cost alternatives to rigid solar panels made of silicon.
Organic solar cells, a new class of solar cell that mimics the natural process of plant photosynthesis, could revolutionize renewable energy - but currently lack the efficiency to compete with the more costly commercial silicon cells.
Organic solar cells that convert light to electricity using carbon-based molecules have shown promise as a versatile energy source but have not been able to match the efficiency of their silicon-based counterparts.
MIT researchers have developed a new approach for solar power that could push the technology to new heights.
