  • Oxford PV, an Oxford University spin-off company, announced a new record efficiency of 29.52% for its perovskite silicon tandem solar cell.
  • To develop the tandem solar cell, the researchers at Oxford PV utilized the technology that involves coating a thin film of perovskite material on ordinary silicon solar cells to better use photons across the solar spectrum.
  • In August 2020, researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE had announced a new record efficiency of 25.9% for the III-V/Si tandem solar cell grown directly on silicon.
