solar cells

The Quantum Photovoltaics Group is based in the Department of Physics at Imperial College London. We specialize in the application of nanotechnology to achieve high efficiency solar cells.

Our Research

  • High efficiency concentrator solar cells. Best result 30.6% (highest efficiency nanostructured solar cell)
  • Multi-junction solar cells - novel sub-cell materials & nanophotonic enhancements
  • Up conversion & intermediate band solar cells
  • Theory and proof of principle of other high-efficiency solar cell concepts
