Patented nanostructure for solar cells: Rough optics, smooth surface

Patented nanostructure for solar cells: Rough optics, smooth surface

Thin-film solar cells made of crystalline silicon are inexpensive and achieve efficiencies of a good 14 percent. However, they could do even better if their shiny surfaces reflected less light. A team has now patented a sophisticated new solution to this problem.

Trends in PV metallization

Trends in PV metallization

The photovoltaic industry remains a major end user of printed electronics. In this article, we will provide a detailed cost breakdown of the wafer-based silicon photovoltaic cells, showing that Ag and Al metallization continue to constitute a major cost element of the overall PV cell even though the manufacturers make to zero margin. We will then investigate some of the trends in Ag metallization before commenting on silicon inks, which at one…

Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

Thin film PV as a target market for transparent conductive films

This article examines thin film photovoltaics as an addressable market segment for transparent conductive films. IDTechEx Research first gives a general overview of the photovoltaic market, including historic price evolution and also a representative list of bankruptcies, closures, acquisitions and restructuring that took place in the past four years. IDTechEx Research then forecasts the total addressable market for transparent conductive sheets…
