ICEMAN project focuses on hot carrier solar cells. Achieving high efficiencies is a key element for the competitiveness of photovoltaics. Among the third-generation devices, hot carrier solar cells aim to reduce thermalization by achieving high absorption.. The objective of the project is therefore to design an ultra-thin hot carrier cell.
