Strain-balanced quantum well solar cells are seen to have a fundamentally higher detailed balance limiting efficiency than bulk cells, as compressive strain in the quantum wells leads to a reduction in the dominant radiative recombination current. We also investigate the effect of quantum wells on the performance of tandem cells through efficiency calculations and report the characterization of such a device under concentration.
