New Technology Could Boost Solar Cell Efficiency By 30 Percent

• arclein
But beginning around 2006, Bardeen and other scientists exploring new ways to boost the solar-energy conversion rates of photovoltaic panels began taking a renewed interest in singlet fission. In recent years, experiments conducted by Bardeen's group not only helped confirm that the phenomenon is real, but also that it can be highly efficient in a variety of materials. The hope is that singlet fission materials can be incorporated into solar panels to increase their energy conversion efficiency–the ratio of electrons produced to the amount of p
