Abstract
Several thin film solar cell materials have demonstrated greater than 10% conversion efficiency, including amorphous silicon, polycrystalline silicon, cadmium sulfide/copper sulfide, cadmium sulfide/copper indium diselenide, gallium arsenide (CLEFT), cadmium sulfide/cadmium telluride, and gallium arsenide/silicon. The generic category of thin film solar cells is examined to determine prerequisites for use of these materials for large quantities of competitive electrical energy production. The future extrapolated performance, low cost potential, and areas for further research are discussed.
