Multijunction solar cells

Earlier in the week we discussed the Shockley- Queisser limit as a fundamental limit for conversion efficiency of a single-junction solar cell. A key word here is single-junction. In this video, we will introduce the concept of multi-junction solar cells. They are used to surpass the theoretical maximum conversion efficiency of single-junction solar cells: the […]
