Solar Panel Materials.

Can Germanium or Carbon act as a substitute to Silicon to be a good Solar Panel material?

Thanks & Regards,

Germanium is expensive. Carbon may take over from Silicon if the process gets cheap enough.

Thanks.

If Carbon can replace Silicon,what would be the process change in designing and manufacturing Solar panel?

Thanks.

What will be the process changes for manufacturing Solar panels if Carbon or Germanium is used instead of Silicon?
