An optical comparison of silicone and EVA encapsulants under various spectra

McIntosh, Keith; Cotsell, James; Norris, Ann; Powell, Nick; Ketola, Barry

Description

Under the AM1-5g spectrum, the efficiency of a c-Si module can be increased by 0.5-1.5% (relative) by using a silicone encapsulant rather than EVA. This increase is primarily due to photons of wavelengths less than ∼400 nm being transmitted by silicone
