In India, the research on solar cells is b e- ing pursued in various scientific labor a- tories and industries; however, there is no facility for the validation of s o l ar cell efficiency. Globally there are three re c- ognized ce n ters available for validation of solar cell efficiency, namely National Renewable Energy Laboratory (USA), Fraunhofer Physikalisch - Technische Bundesanstalt (Germany) and Institute of Advanced Indus trial Science and Tec h- nology (Japan). In order to validate the e f ficiency of the fabricated solar cells, these have to be sent to one of the above - mentioned centers and this process is not only e x pensive but also time consuming. For the validation of e f fic iency of such devices , it requires calibration of various individual parameters involved in mea s- urement of efficiency, such as, light source, cu r rent/voltage source - meter, temper a ture sensors and active area of device.
