Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


We studied the effect of concentration on commercial CIGS solar cells. Measurement results indicate 23% improvement in efficiency can be achieved under 20X. Methods to optimize concentrator cells for higher irradiance levels are also discussed.
