In this section, we talked about combining a solar cell with a photoelectrode to form a photoelectrochemical device. Why do we add a solar cell in the system?
a)Because the photoelectrode is not able to produce any voltage difference to drive the reaction
b)Because the photoelectrode is not able to produce any current to drive the reaction
c)Because the voltage difference created in the photoelectrode is not able to produce enough voltage to drive the reaction
d)Because the current created in the photoelectrode is not enough to drive the reaction
What is the approximate voltage that the solar cell needs to deliver for the photoelectrochemical device to work?
On the left-hand side of the figure below a III-V triple junction solar cell is shown. On the right-hand side, the J-V curves of the individual component cells and the multi-junction solar cell are shown. Which junction
During manufacturing of a CIGS device, the metal back contact is deposited first, while in case of the CdTe solar cells, the back contact is deposited in the last processing step. What are the configurations of both cells: a) Both
Solar simulators are used to study the performance of solar cells in the lab. In the figure below (left picture), the spectral power density of a solar simulator is shown with the blue line. The spectral power density of this
A solar cell with dimensions 12cm x 12cm is illuminated at standard test conditions. The cell presents the following external parameters: Voc=0.8V,Isc=3A,Vmp=0.75V,Imp=2.5A Calculate the fill factor in percentage [%]: Calculate
Imagine that you are in the lab and you can decide the thickness of the Si layer of your solar cell. You want to optimize the solar cell performance for a wavelength of λ=1000nm, for which the absorption coefficient is
The figure below presents the EQE of a triple junction solar cell with junctions A, B and C under short circuited (V = 0 V) condition. EQE table is: A: EQE = 0.7 wavelength= 300 to 650 nm B: EQE = 0.9 Wavelength= 650 to 850 nm C:
