European scientists add perovskite top layer to CIGS to achieve 17.8% conversion efficiency

The stacked module (3.76cm2) is claimed to implement a fully scalable device concept which features a monolithic interconnection scheme, using seven and four module cell stripes respectively. Image: imec European scientists have teamed from imec, KIT and ZSW to fabricate a thin-film solar module (lab) stack made up of perovskite and Copper Indium Gallium Selenide (CIGS) with a conversion efficiency of 17.8%, which surpasses the highest efficiencies of separate perovskite and CIGS modules. Using a semi-transparent perovskite module as the top stack, light with lower energy passes through and is harvested in the bottom CIGS cell module. The stacked module (3.76cm2) is claimed to implement a fully scalable device concept which features a monolithic interconnection scheme, using seven and four module cell stripes respectively. The result is a reduction of area loss of less tha...
