Thin, Flexible, Quantum-Structured Solar Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Roger E. Welser, Chief Technical Officer
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
The epitaxial liftoff of multi-junction structures provides a means to build photovoltaic devices that are flexible, light weight, and highly efficient. However, current approaches to increasing the AM0 efficiency of multi-junction structures are reaching practical limitations due to the complexity… More

High Efficiency Quantum Well Waveguide Solar Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Roger E. Welser, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
The long-term objective of this program is to develop flexible, lightweight, single-junction solar cells using quantum structured designs that can achieve ultra-high efficiencies (approaching 45%) while avoiding the current matching issues that plague high-efficiency multi-junction devices. … More
