The invention provides a technical approach to solve the pressing problem of manufacturing high efficiency solar cells. The theoretical calculations show that the under a 500-sun concentration, the efficiency limit of the Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) based solar cell described here can be as high as 50 per cent
