Effects of ultra-high flux and intensity distribution in multi-junction solar cells Academic Article uri icon


  • We report results of high-flux experiments on tandem solar cells, with a real-sun probe predicated on mini-dish fiber-optic concentrators. Experimental results and their interpretation focus on: (a) a striking insensitivity of cell efficiency to flux map; (b) the predictability of the flux values at which cell efficiency peaks; and (c) performance of the same cell architecture at markedly smaller cell area.
