I Spectral Sensitivity and Solar Energy

  1. May 9, 2016 #1
    I'm trying to understand the link between Spectral Sensitivity and Solar Energy.

    To give some context, I've been learning about external quantum efficiency and spectral response.

    I found a lot of literature about spectral sensitivity, with one saying the units of it were Ampres / lux.
    Is spectral sensitivity a measure of the amount of current generated by the solar cell per lumen/m2?

    How come it is not Ampres / radiant flux or intensity? A bit of a photometry/radiometry question I guess...
