The paper looks into collaboration in solar cell research in India as reflected by the publications indexed in Web of Science for a period of 20 years from 1991-2010. Almost half of the total output emerged out of domestic and international collaboration. Academic institutions had almost equal proportion of output emerging from domestic as well international collaboration. Among the prolific institutions National Physical Laboratory-Delhi of the Council of Scientific and Industrial Research had the highest publications emerging out of collaborative research. Indian researchers collaborated with their counterparts in 31 countries; however, South Korea, Japan, USA, Germany, England, France and Greece were dominant collaborating research partners. Various bibilometric indicators have been used to examine collaborative research activity. Research collaboration gained momentum during the later decade. International collaborative output had more impact compared to domestic collaboration in terms of citations per paper.
