Title: Selecting tandem partners for silicon solar cells [Selecting tandem partners for silicon solar cells using spectral efficiency]

Combining silicon and other materials in tandem solar cells is one approach to enhancing the overall power conversion efficiency of the cells. Here, we argue that top cell partners for silicon tandem solar cells should be selected on the basis of their spectral efficiency — their efficiency resolved by wavelength.
