Table 3 Best practice results of photovoltaic characterization in the environmental test—radiation 900 W·m2, ambient temperature 25 degrees celsius—the different amount of coating (absorber)

From: Quantitative trade-off analysis of infrared light absorber effects contributed to photovoltaic cells performance

Amount of absorber (droplets) ISC (A) VOC (V) Pmax Energy efficiency %
0 (uncoated) 0.7614 0.5273 0.2010 1.9901
60 0.5549 0.5553 0.1610 1.1221
80 0.9222 0.5454 0.2910 2.0072
100 0.7081 0.5453 0.2822 1.9970

160 0.7979 0.5378 0.5571 1.6114
  1. Bold values indicate that short intervals between these two amounts of the absorber (droplets) are recommended to achieve the best energy efficiency
