New World Record Efficiency for Organic Solar Modules
A research team from Nuremberg and Erlangen has set a new record for the power conversion efficiency of organic photovoltaic modules (OPV). The scientists from the 3 institutions that are the startup platform for SCIPRIOS - FAU, ZAE and HI ERN -, in cooperation with South China University of Technology (SCUT), designed an OPV module with an efficiency of 12.6 percent on an area of 26 square centimeters. The new world record exceeds the previous one of 9.7 percent by 30 percent.
