Tandem solar cell world record: A certified efficiency of 24.16 percent

A special branch in the famous NREL-chart for solar cell world records refers to a newly developed tandem solar cell by HZB teams. The world-record cell combines the semiconductors perovskite and CIGS to a monolithic “two-terminal” tandem cell. Due to the thin-film technologies used, such tandem cells survive much longer in space and can even be produced on flexible films.
