Bettering mild absorption in perovskite/Si tandem photo voltaic cells — ScienceDaily



A analysis staff, affiliated with UNIST has succeeded in attaining an influence conversion effectivity (PEC) of 23.50% in a perovskite-silicon tandem photo voltaic cell constructed with a particular textured anti-reflective coating (ARC) polymeric movie. In keeping with the analysis staff, the PCE of the system with the ARC movie was sustained for 120 hours, sustaining 91% of its preliminary worth.

This breakthrough has been led by Professor Kyoung Jin Choi and his analysis staff within the Division of Supplies Science and Engineering at UNIST, in collaboration with Professor Jung-Kun Lee and his analysis staff from the College of Pittsburgh in america.

Within the work, the analysis staff systematically demonstrated {that a} mixture of silicon dioxide (SiO2) nanoparticles and huge phosphor particles can convert ultraviolet (UV) to seen mild and enhance complete transmittance of ARC movie. Their experimental and computational outcomes additionally present that SiO2 nanoparticles within the ARC movie lower the reflectance by growing the diffuse transmittance.

Furthermore, the PCE of the system with the ARC movie was sustained for 120 hours, sustaining 91% of its preliminary worth, whereas the PCE of present units dropped to 90% of its preliminary effectivity after 5 hours, after which decreased to 50% after 20 hours. As well as, the preliminary effectivity of the photo voltaic cell has additionally elevated by almost 4.5% in comparison with the earlier one.

“This optically engineered ARC movie efficiently promotes the sunshine absorption of the perovskite/silicon tandem photo voltaic cell, resulting in the advance of energy conversion effectivity of the tandem cell from 22.48% to 23.50%,” famous the analysis staff.

This research has been collectively participated by Seongha Lee (Division of Mechanical Engineering and Materials Science, College of Pittsburgh) and Chan Ul Kim (Division of Supplies Science and Engineering, UNIST).
