Perovskite Solar Cells Excerpt :

Hybrid organic and inorganic perovskites (HOIP) have shown remarkable progress since the first realisation of efficient PSCs with a PCE of 3.9% in 2009; the record PCE reached 23.3% in 2018. The next step will undoubtedly be developing scale-up techniques for transitioning small-area devices to large-area modules. Most books outline only the basic theoretical background, fabrication methods and/or applications. To bridge the gap between academia and industry, a profound understanding of the recent advancements in the HOIPs field is necessary. Experts' insights in this book present an in-depth overview of information regarding the materials synthesis methodologies, effects of dopants, optimised optoelectronic properties, suitable deposition methods, engineering and improving the stability of various device architectures using printing methods for flexible large-area PSC modules, including the module concept, discuss various challenges and issues that can open the door for the researchers towards commercialisation of durable perovskite solar cells. Moreover, this book also covers the developments on the zero-, two-, and three-dimensional non-toxic perovskite/non-perovskite materials, the radiation degradation of solar cells, the synergetics of cooperative phenomena in tandem systems and provide some recommendations to overcome the challenges for improving the photoconversion efficiency.

Nanostructured Solar Cells Excerpt :

Nanostructured solar cells are very important in renewable energy sector as well as in environmental aspects, because it is environment friendly. The nano-grating structures (such as triangular or conical shaped) have a gradual change in refractive index which acts as a multilayer antireflective coating that is leading to reduced light reflection losses over broadband ranges of wavelength and angle of incidence. There are different types of losses in solar cells that always reduce the conversion efficiency, but the light reflection loss is the most important factor that decreases the conversion efficiency of solar cells significantly. The antireflective coating is an optical coating which is applied to the surface of lenses or any optical devices to reduce the light reflection losses. This coating assists for the light trapping capturing capacity or improves the efficiency of optical devices, such as lenses or solar cells. Hence, the multilayer antireflective coatings can reduce the light reflection losses and increases the conversion efficiency of nanostructured solar cells.

Advanced Concepts in Photovoltaics Excerpt :

Photovoltaic systems enable the sun’s energy to be converted directly into electricity using semiconductor solar cells. The ultimate goal of photovoltaic research and development is to reduce the cost of solar power to reach or even become lower than the cost of electricity generated from fossil and nuclear fuels. The power conversion efficiency and the cost per unit area of the phototvoltaic system are critical factors that determine the cost of photovoltaic electricity. Until recently, the power conversion efficiency of single-junction photovoltaic cells has been limited to approximately 33% - the so-called Shockley-Queisser limit. This book presents the latest developments in photovoltaics which seek to either reach or surpass the Shockley-Queisser limit, and to lower the cell cost per unit area. Progress toward this ultimate goal is presented for the three generations of photovoltaic cells: the 1st generation based on crystalline silicon semiconductors; the 2nd generation based on thin film silicon, compound semiconductors, amorphous silicon, and various mesoscopic structures; and the 3rd generation based on the unique properties of nanoscale materials, new inorganic and organic photoconversion materials, highly efficient multi-junction cells with low cost solar concentration, and novel photovoltaic processes. The extent to which photovoltaic materials and processes can meet the expectations of efficient and cost effective solar energy conversion to electricity is discussed. Written by an international team of expert contributors, and with researchers in academia, national research laboratories, and industry in mind, this book is a comprehensive guide to recent progress in photovoltaics and essential for any library or laboratory in the field.
