The maximum theoretical efficiency of a terrestrial non-concentrated silicon solar cell is 29.4%, as obtained from detailed balance analysis. Over 90% of the current silicon photovoltaics market is based on solar cells with diffused junctions (Al-BSF, PERC, PERL, etc.), which are limited in performance by increased non-radiative recombination in the doped regions.
