Description

Highly flexible modules using thin 153 cm[superscript 2] silicon crystalline cells and transparent fluoropolymer foil are demonstrated. The modules can be flexed 200 times around a bend radius of 4

Highly flexible modules using thin 153 cm[superscript 2] silicon crystalline cells and transparent fluoropolymer foil are demonstrated. The modules can be flexed 200 times around a bend radius of 4 cm without change in efficiency. The silicon crystalline heterojunction solar cells are 65±5 μm-thick with efficiencies up to 18.4%. Cracks in the solar cells and interconnections that are induced by mechanical stress during module bending are examined using electroluminescence.
