Sharp Achieves 37.9% Efficiency With Triple-junction Compound Solar Cell: Sharp Corp realized a cell conversio...

Sharp makes triple-junction compound solar cells by efficiently stacking three layers and using InGaAs (indium gallium arsenide) for the bottom layer. This time, the company made improvements to the composition ratio of In, Ga and As, which compose the bottom layer, so that light is more efficiently absorbed in accordance with the wavelength of sunlight.
