Abstract: The demand for energy of modern society is constantly increasing. The desire for environmental-friendly alternative energy resources with the least dependency on fossil fuels is growing. Solar energy is an important technology for many reasons and is worthy of urgent attention. Indeed, it has experienced rapid growth over the last few years. It is expected to become truly main stream when the breakeven of high performance is achieved and its cost becomes comparable with other energy sources. Various approaches have been proposed to enhance the efficiency of solar cells. This paper reviews some current initiatives and critical issues on the efficiency improvement of solar cells from the material sciences and chemistry perspectives.
