Slow 'hot electrons' could improve solar cell efficiency

Slow 'hot electrons' could improve solar cell efficiency

Jan 18, 2018 Netherlands
Photons with energy higher than the 'band gap' of the semiconductor absorbing them give rise to what are known as hot electrons. The extra energy in respect to the band gap is lost very fast, as it is converted into heat so it does not contribute to the voltage.
