Triple-junction III-V based concentrator solar cells: Perspectives and challenges
Abstract/OtherAbstract :
This paper gives a review of the work performed in the framework of the EC-funded project FULLSPECTRUM aiming for higher photovoltaic (PV) conversion efficiencies by investigating GaInP/GaInAs/Ge triple-junction concentrator solar cells. Lattice mismatched structures reached efficiencies beyond 35% at 600 sun concentration level. These cells are now ready to enter the terrestrial PV market. The perspectives and challenges associated with the market introduction of these cells are addressed. Specifically issues of reliability and on-wafer characterization are discussed. A new characterization tool MAPCON was developed and is presented.
