Do you know that Edward Yu of the University of California is leading a team of electrical engineers on a ‘thin-film single junction solar cell’ project with the potential for nearly 45 per cent sunlight-to-electricity conversion efficiency? This would allow crossing the theoretical limit of 31 per cent efficiency for conventional single junction cells, writes Satyesh C. Chakraborty in Energy Opportunities & Social Responsibility.
