Description

A tandem configuration of perovskite and silicon solar cells is a promising way to achieve high-efficiency solar energy conversion at low cost. Four-terminal tandems, in which each cell is connected independently, avoid the need for current matching between the top and bottom cells, giving greater design flexibility. In a four-terminal tandem, the perovskite top cell requires two transparent contacts. Through detailed analysis of electrical and optical power losses, we identify optimum contact...[Show more]

dc.description.abstractA tandem configuration of perovskite and silicon solar cells is a promising way to achieve high-efficiency solar energy conversion at low cost. Four-terminal tandems, in which each cell is connected independently, avoid the need for current matching between the top and bottom cells, giving greater design flexibility. In a four-terminal tandem, the perovskite top cell requires two transparent contacts. Through detailed analysis of electrical and optical power losses, we identify optimum contact parameters and outline directions for the development of future transparent contacts for tandem cells. A semitransparent perovskite cell is fabricated with steady-state efficiency exceeding 12% and broadband near infrared transmittance of >80% using optimized sputtered indium tin oxide front and rear contacts. Our semitransparent cell exhibits much less hysteresis than opaque reference cells. A four-terminal perovskite on silicon tandem efficiency of more than 20% is achieved, and we identify clear pathways to exceed the current single silicon cell record of 25.6%.
