Dye Sensitized Solar Cells – The Latest Class of Photovoltaic Cell Technology

Imagine producing electricity without the sun. That is what dye sensitized solar cells can do. This third generation solar cell can generate electricity under low light conditions. More importantly, it can do so using indoor lighting. However, the use of dye sensitized solar cells does not come without its own challenges. Research in photovoltaic technology is ongoing to improve its relatively low efficiency rate compared

How to calculate solar cell efficiency?

Solar radiation is electromagnetic radiation released by the Sun. While every area on Earth receives some sunlight over the year, the amount of solar radiation that reaches any spot on the Earth’s surface differs. Solar cells catch this radiation and transform it into useful forms
