A photovoltaic cell only converts about 10% of the collected solar energy to electricity, so the remaining 90% is converted to heat. Placing a photovoltaic cell directly onto the Stevenson screen is therefore strongly discouraged as it would no longer provide a standardized environment, unless perhaps if you properly thermo-isolate it.
What I would do is create a separate component to carry your solar cell, and which you could attach to the pole (as the one shown in the first picture) beneath the Stevenson screen.
