Abstract
Flexible photovoltaic cells with a specific power of more than 275 W/kg have been demonstrated by depositing copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) absorber layers on ultra lightweight and highly durable titanium foil. Advanced device designs employing nanostructured optical coatings and exploiting optical cavity effects provide a pathway to further increase power-generating capability. Single-junction CIGS devices can potentially outperform multi-junction III-V structures in some environments, including under high air mass terrestrial spectrums.
