Solar Power

Suppose a PVC solar cell converts or absorbs 30% of the electromagnetic radiation which falls upon it, where I understand that “Gamma rays” or the such simply pass through it, would it not be so that a large portion of the 70% not converted, if directed to yet another PVC, could this second PVC convert 30% of the reflected 70% which the first PVC did not convert?

I believe the answer is “Yes, for the most part” which would than imply that the unabsorbed portion of the second pass could be directed again to a third PVC.

Is this correct?
