Materials used on Solar Cell from ALB – CIGS, CdTe, GaAs, CZTS

The shortage of traditional energy and environmental pollution become the major problem of restricting economic and social development. Searching for pollution-free resources becomes more and more urgent. As a clean and renewable power source, solar energy gets much more attention. As a kind of green energy, especially in the case of nuclear safety problem becoming prominent, solar energy are thought to be the best choice to solve the energy failure and environmental pollution and so on.

The solar cell is a device converting solar energy directly into electrical energy, also is an effective way to use solar energy. The solar cells, including monocrystalline silicon solar cells, polycrystalline silicon solar cells, and thin film solar cells.
