New blend of materials makes solar cells a thousand times more efficient

Photovoltaik-Modul

A team from Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) has taken an important step in the search for solar cells. The combination of three crystal layers greatly increases the photovoltaic effect: by a factor of 1000. It can make photovoltaic systems more efficient.

The range of materials that solar cells can be coated with makes them a thousand times more efficient.
