TSU radiophysicists will double the efficiency of solar cells


Anton Pischagin, a graduate student of the Faculty of Radiophysics advised by Professor Andrey Kokhanenko, is developing nanostructures based on silicon for converting solar energy into electricity. These materials will allow doubling the efficiency of solar cells.

Based on the results of experiments with already-received semiconductor nanostructures, TSU scientists plan to increase the efficiency of solar cells up to 35-40%. The maximum possible efficiency of such batteries, according to theoretical calculations, is 53%.
