Silicon teams up with perovskites to form tandem solar cells

March 24, 2015

Traditional solar cells with a single band gap utilize less than half the energy in the solar spectrum. We’re developing “tandem,” or vertically stacked, solar cells, which aim to convert a greater percentage of incident sunlight into electricity. Our focus is on foundational technology development, including proof-of-principle demonstrations of device architectures and manufacturing approaches, methods to overcome key […]
