Paper Abstract

We report on latest progress in the field of p-i-n type tandem solar cells. An optimized tandem cell architecture with two complementary absorbing bulk heterojunctions leads to a certified power conversion efficiency of 5.9% on 2 cm2 active area. Moreover, we show that p-i-n type tandem solar cells can be extremely stable: Extrapolated lifetimes corresponding to more than 30 years of sun illumination have been achieved. Furthermore, we show that efficiency and stability only slightly decrease when transferring the cell architecture to large serially interconnected modules of more than 100 cm² area.
