Thank you

Your recommendation has been sent to your librarian.

The object of the letter is to propose a new backward solar cell. The reason for calling it backward is because under dark conditions it behaves as a backward diode. The main advantage of this solar cell is the higher open-circuit voltage compared to the currently used p-n solar cell.
