Ben-Gurion University develops side-illuminated ultra-efficient solar cell designs
Beer-Sheva, Israel (SPX) Nov 09, 2012
Researchers at Ben-Gurion University of the Negev (BGU) have developed a radically new design for a concentrator solar cell that, when irradiated from the side, generates solar conversion efficiencies which rival, and may eventually surpass, the most ultra-efficient photovoltaics. The new cell architecture developed at the David Ben-Gurion National Solar Research Center at BGU can exceed an ultra-efficient 40 percent conversion efficiency with intensities equal to 10,000 suns. "Typically a c ... read more
