MUNICH, Germany (AVING Special Report on 'Intersolar 2010') -- <Visual News> JA Solar Holdings(www.jasolar.com) introduced its new family of high performance solar cells, dubbed "SECIUM" at the Intersolar 2010 June 9 - 11, 2010 in Munich.
The new cost effective, high efficiency SECIUM solar cells enable substantially better spectral response at short wavelengths in comparison with standard solar cells. Additional 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 2010. The 18.9 percent conversion efficiency results have been independently certified by The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems (ISE) in Germany.
