Solar technology is always evolving. It comes as no surprise that continuing to improve solar efficiency remains a top priority in the industry. MIT and Stanford University have constructed tandem silicon-perovskite solar cells because they have the potential to increase efficiency. These multi-junction cells can absorb a larger segment of solar energy due to the increased absorption of photons. Silicon absorbs photons with a high band gap while perovskite captures photons from lower infrared segment. To learn more about tandem solar cells, click on the link below!

Solar energy could soon get a 2 for 1 boost with tandem cells
