JA Solar Holdings Co. Ltd., a manufacturer of solar power products, has introduced a new family of solar cells called SECIUM. These cells enable substantially better spectral response at short wavelengths in comparison with standard solar cells, according to the company.
Additional product highlights include an increased open-circuit voltage, increased short-circuit current and a reduction in recombination losses. The SECIUM cells also demonstrate a higher fill factor and have higher power output than those of conventional solar cells.
Pilot production of the SECIUM cells began in May, with commercial volume production anticipated in the second half of this year. The 18.9% conversion efficiency results have been independently certified by The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems in Germany, the company notes.
