Solar cell captures nearly all energy of solar spectrum

Solar cell captures nearly all energy of solar spectrum
Scientists have designed and constructed a prototype for a new solar cell that integrates multiple cells stacked into a single device capable of capturing nearly all of the energy in the solar spectrum. The new design converts direct sunlight to electricity with 44.5% efficiency, giving it the potential to become the most efficient solar cell in the world. The approach is different from the solar panels one might commonly see on rooftops or in fields.

Developing the world's most efficient solar panel

Developing the world's most efficient solar panel
Through a $900,000 grant from the Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E), the George Washington University has joined a partnership to develop novel solar cells and create what has the potential to be the world's most efficient solar panel. GW researchers will work with Semprius, a Durham, N.C.-based startup, the Naval Research Laboratory tool supplier Veeco and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
