Solar Cells: Overview of Solar Cell Properties

A solar cell is a device that converts light from the sun directly into electricity. They are also called photovoltaic devices. There are a wide variety of solar cells available in the market, and they are all differentiated by their different materials and structures. All of these have one target which is to produce maximum amount of energy while leaving minimum installation and production cost at a low. More than half of the solar cells available in the market are made of silicon as they are very cheap due to their huge availability in the earth’s crust. As it is very easily accessible, silicon is the most researched, developed, and used element to date in terms of solar cells.
