Toshiba Boosts Transparent Cu2O Tandem Solar Cell to A New High
Contributing to the development of no-plug charging EVs and transportation electrification TOKYO, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Researchers at Japan's Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) have announced a significant advance in their work to develop an efficient, low cost and highly reliable tandem solar cell that raises the output of solar panels by layering a transparent solar cell over a standard silicon cell. Building on their achievements to date, the researchers have reported a transparent cuprous oxide (Cu2O) solar cell with a conversion efficiency (PCE) of 9.5%, the highest level yet achieved for a Cu2O cell (*1). This was realized by enlarging its predecessor, announced in December 2021, and points to the potential for mass production. The new cell is expected to provide a boost for the development of EV that do not require plug-in charging, and to advance other mobility applications, such as high-altitude platform stations, telecom platforms in the stratosphere. Figure 1: Toshiba’s newly developed Cu2O solar cell delivers a high 9.5% PCE. Worldwide promotion of renewables as a mainstream energy supply, and of efforts to electrify transportation, is creating opportunities for solar cells. Toshiba is committed to using its technological capabilities to advance carbon neutrality, and as part of this is developing highly efficient and reliable low cost tandem solar cells that can be mounted on vehicles and trains, which offer only limited installation space. Figure 2: Artist’s impression of Cu2O-Si tandem solar cells installed in an EV Tandem cells position a solar cell over a standard silicon cell. The cells generate power at different wavelengths, raising areal output, and have great potential to boost the efficiency of solar modules. In addition to Toshiba's transparent Cu2O cell, work is being done on two other tandem cell technologies: fabrication with gallium arsenide (GaAs) or other III-V materials (*2); and perovskite crystal thin films. Production costs for the former range from several hundred to several thousand times the cost of a single silicon cell, severely restricting application. The latter cannot yet deliver the necessary reliability and guaranteed output for the 20-years-and-more life of a silicon cell. Figure 3: Schematic of Toshiba’s Cu2O-Si tandem solar cell. Toshiba's R&D focuses on the advantages of transparent Cu2O cells: fabrication with naturally abundant materials cuts costs; a hard and strong, and moisture resistant material, all guarantees of reliability (Figure 4); and light transmittance qualities that open the way to high level power generation efficiency. Figure 4: Almost no loss in power generation efficiency or transmittance in uncovered Cu2O cells in an indoor laboratory environment for a year demonstrate high reliability. Toshiba's painstaking efforts are now bearing fruit. In a research project supported by Japan's New Energy and Industry Technology Development Organization (NEDO), researchers have pushed the PCE of the Cu2O cell to 9.5%, a full 1.1% over the 8.4% reported last year. It was achieved by enlarging the cell and suppressing carrier recombination in the edge of Cu2O generation layer, which degrades generation efficiency. "We found that a larger cell size effectively suppresses photocarrier recombination," explains Kazushige Yamamoto, a Fellow at Toshiba's Corporate Research & Development Center, and leader of the research team. "Increasing the power generation area from the previous 3x3mm2 to 10x3mm2 produced a relative reduction in recombination in the edge of cell, and the resulting increase in photocurrent pushed the PCE to 9.5%." (Figure 5) Figure 5: Movement of optical carriers when cell size is enlarged (viewed from top) Toshiba has estimated that positioning the new Cu2O solar cell over a 25% PCE silicone cell realizes a Cu2O-Si tandem cell with a 28.5% PCE—notably surpassing 26.7%, the highest reported PCE for any standard silicon cell (*3), and close to 29.1%, the highest reported PCE for any GaAs cell. Under test criteria defined by NEDO, Toshiba found that a one-time charge enables the current Cu2O-Si tandem cell to power an electric vehicle (EV) for 37km, and further improvements in solar cells toward the theoretical maximum efficiency of 42.3% are expected to extend the range to a distance approaching 55km. These are both recognized as practical distances for short trips without recharging, and would reduce charging frequency for longer trip. Toshiba targets a practical Cu2O-Si tandem cell with a 10% PCE Cu2O cell and an overall PCE of 30%, and the new cell records solid progress to that goal. Looking to mass production, the company is working to enlarge cell size, and has made a prototype with a power generation area of 40mm2 and a PCE around 8% (Figure 6). The efficiency falloff in the larger cell is due to a less uniform layer and Toshiba continues to refine thin film deposition technology for uniform deposition over a larger area. Figure 6: Prototype 40mm2 transparent Cu2O solar cell Toshiba will exhibit this technology advance at CEATEC 2022, a hybrid international tech exhibition that will take place in Japan in October, and also present it at the 33rd International Photovoltaic Science and Engineering Conference (PVSEC-33), at the Nagoya Congress Center in Nagoya, Japan, from November 13 to 17. Moving toward practical use in FY2025, Toshiba will cooperate with Toshiba Energy Systems & Solutions Corporation to develop manufacturing technology for tandem cells around the same size as today's mainstream silicon solar cells. The company will also develop technology for producing 4-terminal Cu2O-Si tandem solar cells suitable for EVs and other mobility devices. (Notes) . Source: Toshiba.

BEIJING, Sept. 26, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- The Automotive LiDAR 2022 Annual Conference and Exhibition is the only worldwide summit, specially focused on automotive LiDAR technologies and applications, which has been already held 5 times in the United States, and it's the highest-level industry exchange summit of automotive grade LiDAR. ZVision was invited to participate the summit as the leader in Chinese LiDAR market , and vice president Frank Li gave a speech "MEMS based LiDARs for ADAS&AV Application" in the summit. With the rapid progress of autonomous driving technology, LiDAR, as an core sensor in perception, has moved beyond aerospace, military, robotics and meteorology into automotive industry, attracting more and more attention. This new technology shows its huge potential. It is expected that the global automotive LiDAR market will exceed US$20 billion by 2025. Frank noted that as the demand of autonomous driving market increase, single LiDAR cannot meet the requirements in safety redundancy and high-level autonomous driving. Thus, multi-LiDAR solution: L+S (Long range LiDAR + Short range LiDAR) is necessary, which can provide blind area detection and full perception around the car body. L stands for long-range LiDAR, facing forward, applies for long range detection, S stands for short-range LiDAR, facing sides, applies for blind area detection around the car. L + S solution can cover the applications from passenger car to robotaxi. LiDAR, which acted as "the eye of autonomous driving", is an active sensor that can emit laser beam to measure the precise distance of the target. As a necessary perception sensor above L2, the ML-30s+ short range LiDAR from ZVision has an ultra-wide FOV of 140° x 70°, and more than 20m@10% detection range, which can provide wide vision coverage, high resolution 3D pointclouds, thus can minimize risks in blind area around car body. Meanwhile, ML-30s+ uses advanced silicon-based MEMS mirror, beneficial from small size and pure silicon material, it has no metal fatigue, no noise, low risk in shock and vibration, has long life time, and can be highly integrated. As a representative long-range LiDAR, ML-Xs is automotive grade and delivers excellent performance with 1550nm wavelength laser. In consideration of human eye safety, ML-Xs has higher signal intensity, lower background noise, and better beam quality, thus can achieve long detection distance, of 250m@10%, with high density of 180 lines,. ML-Xs has a unique vertical ROI design in full horizontal FOV, and the vertical resolution is less than 0.1° in ROI region. Also it has an modular horizontal FOV (45° / 30° / 45°) design, which is compatible in both high speed forward detection and medium/low speed wide FOV applications. Among world-wide major LiDAR providers, Chinese companies are pioneers both in mass production and technology innovation. Lots of MP projects means products are fully verified in functions and reliability. And leading advantages in specification, performance and variety show technology innovation. In the end, Frank added "Compared with oversea giants, Chinese companies has advantages in both performance and cost. Besides the technology advantages in solid- state vs mechanical, Chinese manufacturers have more cost down potential in R&D, manufacturing, logistics, and labor etc."

High Quality and Extreme Challenge: OMODA 5 Does a Great Job in the Tri-extreme Tests
CANBERRA, Australia, Sept. 23, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Nowadays, the important way to check the vehicle dependability is to conduct tests under extreme conditions of low-temp, high-temp, and high-altitude (hereinafter referred to as " Tri-extreme" tests). Given this, Chery's OMODA 5 R&D team carried out the " Tri-extreme" tests, with a minimum temperature of over -40°C, a maximum temperature of nearly 50°C, and a maximum altitude of 5,200m, to test the overall vehicle dependability. OMODA 5 successfully passed such tests thanks to its global-standard quality. For the extreme low-temp condition test, the OMODA 5's functions, such as heating, defrosting and defogging, all worked normally at -43℃, and the cold start time only took 1-3 seconds, passing the test successfully. For the extreme high-temp condition test, OMODA 5 R&D team carried out dynamic tests of all-round and multi-terrain complex working conditions under a maximum temperature of 49.6℃, including vehicle weather resistance and exposure to harsh sun and dust, all of which passed. In particular, in the air conditioning cooling test at 50℃, both the temperatures of OMODA 5's air conditioning vents and the head space are significantly lower than those of its competitors during the same period, reaching an outstanding level in its class. The extreme high-altitude condition test was performed at a maximum altitude of 5,200m, with air pressure below 60KPA. Normally, the fuel engine would be powerless like human beings due to lack of oxygen under such conditions. However, OMODA 5 was not affected, as demonstrated by testing the powertrain response, forward slope, reverse slope and other aspects. Through the "Tri-extreme" tests by the OMODA 5 R&D team, OMODA 5's global quality and excellent strength have been verified in all aspects. As Chery's first global model, OMODA 5 not only passed the extreme scenario tests with reliable quality, but also underwent local adaptability development for major overseas markets development at the beginning of R&D to satisfy the needs of global users. As OMODA 5 makes its way around the world, it will show its trustworthy quality and charm to global users and become a shining example for overseas export of "Intelligent Manufacturing in China" on behalf of Chery.
