What is the most commonly used material for solar cells?

Answer:

The most commonly used solar cells material is the solar photovoltaic (PV) cells. They are used for the direct conversion of light energy into electrical energy. At present, a large number of terrestrial photovoltaic systems are made by silicon solar cells, which can be divided into silicon, polycrystalline silicon, amorphous silicon solar cells.
In terms of energy conversion efficiency and sustainability, the silicon and polycrystalline silicon cells are superior to amorphous silicon cells. Polycrystalline silicon conversion efficiency is low, but the price is cheaper.
It is mainly the crystalline silicon materials (including polysilicon and monocrystalline silicon), its market share in more than 90% and in the future for a long period of time will still be the main material of solar cells.
Anyone of these is the materials for making the solar cells: Crystalline silicon solar cell, silicon solar cell, silicon solar cell. Amorphous silicon cell: thin film solar cells, organic solar cells. Chemical dye cell plate: dye sensitized solar cell.
Because of the commercialization of solar cells. The variety of solar cells includes monocrystalline silicon solar battery, poly silicon solar cell, non crystalline silicon solar battery, there are also,cadmium, copper indium, etc.
