Abstract

The Ga0.5In0.5P/GaAs monolithic two‐terminal tandem cell has been adapted for concentrator operation. the adaptation involves changes in the grid design, top‐cell base thickness and top‐cell emitter thickness. the prototype concentrator device has demonstrated an efficiency exceeding 30% in the concentration range of 115‐260 suns, making this the first two‐terminal monolithic cell to exceed 30% efficiency.
