Team lands new efficiency breakthrough for emerging solar cell material

Posted by in categories: solar power, sustainability

UNSW solar energy researcher and Scientia Fellow Dr. Xiaojing Hao and her team have achieved two energy efficiency world records for the solar cell material of the future, sulfide kesterite.

Dr. Hao and her team broke the 10 per cent barrier for not only sulfide kesterite but also for a standard sized kesterite solar cell, whether pure sulfide material or incorporating less-desirable selenium.

The result, which is published in a paper in Nature Energy today, is the fourth consecutive efficiency record achieved by the group led by Dr. Hao in two years.
