Caption: Close-up of a single-crystal silicon photovoltaic cell. The cell has a circular shape, as it is a slice from a cylindrical silicon crystal. The surface of the cell is covered with a thin layer of a second semiconductor, normally germanium. The radial bright lines are silver conductors which carry the electricity from the cell. Single-crystal solar cells are relatively efficient (converting about 14% of incident light to electricity), but very expensive.
