HIGH-FLUX CHARACTERIZATION OF ULTRA-EFFICIENT COMMERCIAL 1 MM 2 MULTI-JUNCTION SOLAR CELLS Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • ABSTRACT. A characterization study of ultra-small ultra-efficient multi-junction concentrator solar cells is presented, with emphasis on performance sensitivity to light intensity and distribution. Information of this type is essential in the design and optimization of the latest generations of highflux photovoltaic systems. Cell miniaturization allows increasing the concentration at which efficiency peaks, facilitates passive heat rejection and permits the use of all-glass optics. However, few device measurements have been published on ultra …
