Award List:

Multi-Photon Solar Cell

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Boston University
Principal Investigator: Mark B. Spitzer, President
Award Amount: $99,993.00
RI Contact: Joan Kirkendall
Abstract:
This proposal addresses the attainment of conversion efficiency exceeding 35% in a single-junction solar cell. Non-absorption of long wavelength photons and thermallization of short wavelength photons accounts for the loss of over half of the incident energy in a single junction cell; however, a… More

SBIR Phase I:Rare-Earth-Doped Wavelength Conversion Material and Optical Element

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Mark B. Spitzer, DPhil
Award Amount: $164,867.00
Abstract:
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to integrate up and down conversion materials into a single photonic device to solve the problem of mismatch between the solar spectrum and solar cells formed from single absorbers such as silicon. Cooperative nonradiative energy… More
