Russian scientists have developed a composite for solar cells with increased efficiency and resistance to cosmic radiation

09/08/2022

Researchers from St. Petersburg State Electrotechnical University (SPbGETU)  and Alferov University have obtained a multilayer nanosized material, which has increased the efficiency of solar cell energy conversion. The created material is resistant to aggressive environments, including space conditions.

Silicon is today the main material used in solar energy or photovoltaics. However, in terms of their ability to convert energy, silicon cells have already reached the limit. Therefore, scientists are looking for both alternative materials that can replace silicon and modify silicon, for example, by creating new structures using it, to improve the required characteristics.

Russian physicists in their work to create a new material proposed to use silicon with a hole type of conductivity. The composites obtained on its basis, as scientists found out, turned out to be more resistant to such aggressive environments as space conditions. The researchers deposited the elements on the substrate in a special order: a gallium atom was attached to each silicon atom, and then a phosphine was added, which was embedded in the composite.
