Manufacturers : Batteries : Solar cells

A solar cell generates electric energy from sunlight by converting light energy into electrical energy. The conversion of the sun's electromagnetic energy into electricity occurs in a wide variety of semiconductor materials. A solar cell includes a junction of an n-type and a p-type semiconductor (p-n junction).  Single element semiconductors, such as silicon (Si) and germanium (Ge), as well as some compound materials, such as gallium arsenide (GaAs), cadmium telluride (CdTe) and indium phosphide (InP), are capable of forming junctions that create a built-in electric field in the material. These materials are further capable of absorbing photons of energy sufficient to create electron-hole pairs, thereby creating an electrical current. Solar radiation is composed of photons, which are particles that have a variable energy depending on the wavelength of the emissions in the solar spectrum.
