Can organic solar cell technology be successfully commercialized in an unforgiving solar market dominated by crystalline silicon and First Solar ? Heliatek of Dresden, Germany thinks so. In 2009, Heliatek's sample cells had a 6.0 percent conversion efficiency verified by The Fraunhofer Institute. In 2010 it was 8.3 percent.

The firm claims that the 9.8 percent is a world record for this technology and a 10 percent cell is expected next year. The company admits that these are lab results but insists that it is a consistently repeatable value. The efficiency value would be 8.5 percent when deposited on a flexible substrate according to the firm. Organic Solar Cells (OSCs) are sometimes referred to as third-generation solar technology, after crystalline silicon and thin film solar...
