What is the efficiency limit of perovskite tandem cells?
The maximum efficiency as a function of the perovskite band gap energy is presented for tandem cells with a Si or CdTe bottom cell. Several tandem configurations are discussed:
  • 4-Terminal tandem cell
  • 2-Terminal tandem cell for maximum efficiency
  • 2-Terminal tandem cell with photon recycling
  • 2-Terminal tandem cell with partial light absorption in the top cell
