Kosyachenko Y1 - 2011-11-02 PY - 2011 T1 - High Efficiency Solar Cells via Tuned Superlattice Structures: Beyond 42.2% N2 - The fourth book of the four-volume edition of 'Solar cells' consists chapters that are general in nature and not related specifically to the so-called photovoltaic generations, novel scientific ideas and technical solutions, which has not properly approved. General issues of the efficiency of solar cell and through hydrogen production in photoelectrochemical solar cell are discussed. Considerable attention is paid to the quantum-size effects in solar cells both in general and on specific examples of super-lattices, quantum dots, etc. New materials, such as cuprous oxide as an active material for solar cells, AlSb for use as an absorber layer in p-i-n junction solar cells, InGaAsN as a promising material for multi-junction tandem solar cells, InP in solar cells with MIS structures are discussed. Several chapters are devoted to the analysis of both status and perspective of organic photovoltaics such as polymer/fullerene solar cells, poly(p-phenylene-vinylene) derivatives, photovoltaic textiles, photovoltaic fibers, etc. BT - Solar Cells SP - Ch. 15 UR - https://doi.org/10.5772/23510 DO - 10.5772/23510 SN - PB - IntechOpen CY - Rijeka Y2 - 2021-06-17 ER -
