imec pushes 4-terminal perovskite/silicon tandem solar cell to record 27.1%

pvtech Nanoelectronics R&D organisation imec has reported a record 4-terminal Perovskite/silicon tandem photovoltaic cell with a conversion efficiency of 27.1%, while claiming further microcrystal engineering leads a path of efficiencies of over 30%. Key to the new record cell was said to be due to perovskite microcrystals. Manoj Jaysankar, doctoral researcher at imec/EnergyVille noted, “We
