"Katana" project to establish reliable measuring system for tandem solar cells
To pave the way for the industrial application of reliable perovskite-silicon PV modules, a reliable measuring system for tandem solar cells and also modules have to be established. Just after that can objective comparisons in between various cells and modules occur. In comparison to conventional silicon PV modules, nevertheless, the calibration is considerably more challenging.
