Abstract

Multijunction solar cells divide the solar spectrum into smaller slices, delivering experimental efficiencies over 40%, and enabling theoretical efficiency over 60%. These high efficiency cells have a powerful effect on the cost effectiveness of new concentrator photovoltaic systems now being deployed around the world, making this technology one of the most viable options for plentiful solar-generated electricity.
