Сurrent Source Based on Photoelectric Effect with Enhanced Efficiency


Article Preview

The development of the physical current source with enhanced efficiency based on photoelectric effect is discusses in this article. This source intended for direct conversion of light energy into electricity by modified silicon elements. The 10% efficiency of the silicon solar cell was accepted as basic specifications to assess the efficiency of the developed model. The rationale for the selected materials and structures as well as description of the main stages of manufacturing technology and processing of solar cells (SC) were made.
