Photovoltaic cells that convert 31% of the energy in sunlight into electricity have been developed by researchers at the Sandia National Laboratories in Albuquerque, N.M. The rate is the highest ever recorded for solar cells and is about 50% higher than the efficiency of commercial solar cells, which are 18% to 20% efficient. The cells were produced by combining gallium arsenide cells produced by Varian Associates Inc. of Palo Alto, and crystalline silicon cells produced at Stanford University.
