Low-cost multijunction photovoltaic devices are the next step in the solar energy revolution. Adding a bottom junction with a low bandgap energy material through plasma-enhanced chemical vapour deposition (PECVD) processing could provide a low-cost boost in conversion efficiency. A logical candidate for this low-bandgap material is germanium. A...

The development in solar cells began with wafer based cells, also called the first generation photovoltaic technology. Most of these wafer based cells were made of crystalline silicon. As a crystalline silicon cell must be relatively thick to absorb most of the incoming energy, the second generation (thin film solar cells) was introduced. In the...
