Solar Panel Research Process

The performance of solar cells has been slow progress year by year. Now, the research staff is developing a new design and structure that has seen a significant improvement in the energy conversion efficiency of solar cells. Clean, green power of the bright vision, has attracted investors and government agencies on the photovoltaic power generation technology and production devoted a huge investment.Solar Panel

The efficiency of solar cells (that is, the efficiency of converting light energy into electricity) has been steadily advancing. However, compared to the pace of development of semiconductor electronic technology, the pace of development of photovoltaic technology seems slightly inferior. Monocrystalline silicon solar cell conversion efficiency has only doubled, that is, from about 13% in 1977 to now close to 28%; compared to the computer processor and memory development speed is amazing. The use of a new generation of solar cells will further improve the efficiency of photovoltaic a step.Solar Panel

Their goal is not to find new photovoltaic materials, but the use of new technologies to further improve the conversion efficiency of existing photovoltaic materials. One of the objectives of the research staff is to optimize the internal structure of inorganic thin film semiconductors, so that it can be deposited in the form of thin film on the cheap substrate, in order to achieve low-cost, large area of solar panels. Another goal of the research staff is to design an internal micro-nanoween structure to improve light efficiency, conversion efficiency and power generation efficiency.Solar Panel Other research groups are working on new solar cell structures to improve light absorption, resulting in higher current than conventional solar cells. One of the fundamental questions about this is how to balance light absorption and conduct current. The absorption of light increases with the increase in the length of the light in the semiconductor, but the increase in the thickness of the semiconductor layer causes more loss of electrons over time. So the research staff is exploring the transmission of light and current along different paths.Solar Panel
