German scientists have fabricated an enhanced amorphous germanium PV cell that confines light in an ultra-thin absorber.

Researchers from the German Aerospace Center have developed a selective solar cell based on an ultra-thin n-i-p absorber layer stack and a thin-film spectral selective filter.

The device is an enhanced amorphous germanium solar cell that can confine light in an ultra-thin absorber.
