The Daegu Gyeongbuk Institute of Science and Technology (DGIST) in South Korea reported that the team led by Dr. Jin-Kyu Kang at DGIST’s Division of Energy achieved 11.4% for the photoelectric conversion efficiency of flexible CZTSSe thin-film solar cells, the highest in the world.
Scientists from the National University of Science and Technology (MISiS) in Russia and the Tor Vergata University of Romehave found out that a microscopic quantity of two-dimensional titanium carbide called MXene significantly improves collection of electrical charges in a perovskite solar cell, increasing the final efficiency above 20%.
Tandem perovskite-CIGS solar cells, produced as a result of the collaboration between Lithuanian and German researchers, have reached an efficiency of 23.26 per cent, which currently is a world record value in this type of cells.
Researchers from the Australian National University (ANU) have broken new ground in solar cell energy efficiency and in the process provided a glimpse of the technology’s future. The researchers have set a new record of 21.6 per cent efficiency, the highest ever achieved for perovskite cells above a certain size.
Scientists from The Australian National University (ANU) have, for the first time, demonstrated the maximum potential of ultra-thin 2D materials to generate electricity using sunlight.
