Recent advancement in solar cell technology, single-junction Gallium Arsenide (GaAs) solar cells has fascinated many researchers with their efficiency limits. The sudden rise in the advancement in photovoltaic to make the solar cell more effective and efficient have made researchers to cross the boundaries of conventional single material based solar cells. Using Multi Quantum Wells (MQWs) over conventional solar cells helps in reducing losses and enhances the conversion efficiency of the device. In this chapter, four different material combinations are compared to develop quantum wells with single solar cell architecture. Using 25 layers of GaSb/GaAs, InGaP/GaAs, InP/GaAs, and AlGaAs/GaAs, the critical cell parameters are observed and compared.
