dc.description.abstract© 2015 The Royal Society of Chemistry. A promising approach for upgrading the performance of an established low-bandgap solar technology without adding much cost is to deposit a high bandgap polycrystalline semiconductor on top to make a tandem solar cell. We use a transparent silver nanowire electrode on perovskite solar cells to achieve a semi-transparent device. We place the semi-transparent cell in a mechanically-stacked tandem configuration onto copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) and low-quality multicrystalline silicon (Si) to achieve solid-state polycrystalline tandem solar cells with a net improvement in efficiency over the bottom cell alone. This work paves the way for integrating perovskites into a low-cost and high-efficiency (>25%) tandem cell.
dc.description.sponsorshipThis work was primarily supported by the Department of Energy through the Bay Area Photovoltaic Consortium under Award Number DE-EE0004946. This material was also based on work supported by the Center for Advanced Molecular Photovoltaics under Award Number KUS-C1-015-21 by the King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST), and the Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP). The nanowire electrode fabrication work was performed in part at the Stanford Nano-fabrication Facility's nSiL lab, which was funded by National Science Foundation award ARI-0963061. The muticrystalline silicon device fabrication was performed in part at the Harvard Center for Nanoscale Systems, which was funded by National Science Foundation award ECS-0335765. Jonathan P. Mailoa and Jungwoo Z. Lee were supported by the National Research Foundation Singapore through the Singapore MIT Alliance for Research and Technology's Low Energy Electronic Systems research program. A.E. Morishige and J. Hofstetter (MIT) are acknowledged for supplying and advice on preparing the silicon wafers. William H. Nguyen was supported by the Department of Defense (DoD) through the National Defense Science & Engineering Graduate Fellowship (NDSEG) Program. We thank Dmitry Poplavskyy and DuPont for their generous donation of mono-crystalline silicon solar cells. We acknowledge helpful feedback from an anonymous reviewer.
