Taiwanese solar photovoltaic cell
manufacturer Motech's Taoyuan plant reportedly proposed a closure plan to the local labor department on Thursday, with a total of 588 workers to lose their jobs prior to the Lunar New Year holidays.
(2) Concentrator photovoltaic cells
A type of photovoltaic cell
that produces energy when strong sunlight concentrated through a lens is focused on small semiconductor elements made of high-quality semiconducting materials used in products such as lasers and LEDs.
All the photovoltaic cell
parameters are influenced by the temperature variation.
Turnover fell by 4.8% to PS73.9m during the period as the firm said weak demand in the photovoltaic cell
market and slow growth in other industrial applications, as well as lower than expected pricing in the packaging markets.
KUWAIT, Jan 20 (KUNA) -- The Research Sector at the Kuwait University (KU) will organize the second symposium on photovoltaic cell
technologies on January 28 in collaboration with Faculty of Engineering and Petroleum.
Washington, January 20 ( ANI ): A new approach to harvesting solar energy could improve efficiency by using sunlight to heat a high-temperature material whose infrared radiation would then be collected by a conventional photovoltaic cell
This month, we look at the development of stickers that could one day recharge small batteries and an attempt to create an efficient organic photovoltaic cell
that's cheaper to produce than silicon PV cells.
Major Japanese photovoltaic cell
maker Kyocera Corp.
Nick Melosh, an associate professor of materials science and his team found that by coating a layer of gallium nitride in cesium they could get more current out of a photovoltaic cell
. But more than that, they discovered that the cell can use more of the light that hits it and handle much higher operating temperatures.
Applying microwave radiation to the photovoltaic cell
can induce this coherence, which diminishes the chances of free electrons finding holes.
The oil firm has a plan to build a photovoltaic cell
factory with annual production capacity of 1 million kilowatts by 2011 and is considering the Hitachi Plasma Display plant as one of the candidates for the planned facility, they said.
There are a variety of different photovoltaic cell
materials with different band gaps (ie electrical output potential) which peak at different light frequencies, while sunlight has photon energies mostly in the range from 0.5 to 2.9 eV (infrared to UV).
