Abstract
At Fraunhofer ISE the fabrication of high-efficiency solar cells was extended from a laboratory scale to a small pilot-line production. Primarily, the fabricated cells are used in small high-efficiency modules integrated in prototypes of solar-powered portable electronic devices such as cellular phones, handheld computers etc. Compared to other applications of high-efficiency cells such as solar cars and planes, the illumination densities found in these mainly indoor applications are significantly below 1 sun. Thus, special care was taken to keep the cell efficiency level high even at very low illumination levels. For this reason, particularly the cell border was analyzed and optimized carefully. The excellent cell characteristics achieved at low illumination densities increase the benefit of a solar power supply for such devices by an order of magnitude if compared to standard solar cells.
