Abstract : A photovoltaic cell comprised of a plurality of single crystal, remanently polarized, ferroelectric layers in a stack with electrodes affixed to each end. Additionally, electrodes are disposed between adjacent layers or conductive or semi-conductive regions are formed at and near the interfaces between layers by chemical reduction or doping. The cell has a higher conversion efficiency than ferroelectric cells heretofore known. (Author)
