Thin-film Solar Cell Features

Oil, natural gas, coal and other non-renewable energy dries up, the energy problem has become a bottleneck restricting the development of international economy, plus the pressure of the environment quality in declining, makes set off a worldwide wave of new energy research, more and more countries began to implement the "sunshine project", the solar energy application. Thin-film solar cells are characterized by low production cost, good low light and high temperature power generation performance, light weight and flexibility, etc., and have competitive advantages over silicon-based solar cells in photovoltaic building integration, mobile power supply and other aspects.


Advantages of Antimony Selenide Thin Film Solar Cells

The most successful thin-film solar cells on the market today are cadmium telluride (CdTe) cells, but telluride is highly toxic and cadmium is scarce. Since its establishment in 2012, Professor Tang's research group has been focusing on the research of a new type of antimony selenide (Sb2Se3) thin film solar cell with low toxicity stability, low cost and excellent flexibility.The new development in this field is that the Vapor Transport Deposition (VTD) method has taken the place of the previous Rapid Thermal Evaporation (RTE) method which has taken the step of preparing antimony selenide thin films. The equipment used in this method is common quartz tube furnace. Compared with RTE method, the equipment structure is simpler and the cost is lower.

Optimization Results of Antimony Selenide Thin Film Solar Cell

After the systematic optimization of the preparation process of antimony selenide thin film, the research group obtained the antimony selenide thin film solar cell with the certified photoelectric conversion efficiency of 7.6%. This is also the current world record for solar cell efficiency with antimony selenide.
