The company Sharp Corporation has developed the world’s highest solar cell conversion efficiency of 35.8% using a triple-junction compound solar cell. In comparison with silicon-based solar cells, the compound solar cell utilizes photo-absorption layers made from compounds consisting of two or more elements such as gallium and indium.
The company called 1366 Technologies announced it has the capability of producing more efficient solar – silicon based – cells, that could be available in two years.
The researchers at the University of South Florida invented the world’s smallest solar cells, about the size of a lowercase letter, with twenty aligning to form one panel at just one inch. The researchers say that these are some of the smallest solar cells ever. These cells are indicated for many common hand-held devices like [...]
