How To Increase Solar Cell Efficiency
Infact the maximum efficiency could more than double from 31 percent to 66 percent efficiency, and that's due to a new way of getting the power from electrons that hitherto have simply had the energy dissipated as heat.
The method uses something called quantum dots which are tiny tiny pieces of semiconducting materials. This reduces the rate at which the very hot electrons lose their energy to the environment which means that there is therefore time for their energy to be captured.
If this technology proves viable, reliable and indeed affordable then it will mean greatly increased efficiency for the solar cells of the future which from the point of view of renewable energy sources is great news.
