Flexible solar cell laminate comprising a crystalline semiconductor layer
Disclosed is a flexible photovoltaic laminate comprising a photovoltaic semiconductor material. The flexible photovoltaic laminate may be manufactured without the use of adhesive, thereby avoiding light loss through absorption by an adhesive layer. The laminate may be formed by forming a sandwich of the crystalline semiconductor material between layers of non-crosslinked cross-linkable polymer, followed by in situ cross-linking of the polymer. The laminate may be incorporated in a curved surface of a structure, such as a boat hull or boat deck.
