Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Solar Cell Lateral Collection Feasibility Study

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: WookJun Nam, PhD
Award Amount: $100,000.00
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project is to investigate an innovative structure for improving the efficiency of amorphous silicon based solar cells. Amorphous silicon has a short minority carrier diffusion length and the innovative structure reduces the distance necessary to… More

SBIR Phase I: Lateral Collection Polycrystalline Silicon Solar Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Travis L. Benanti, PhD
Award Amount: $150,000.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project is to develop a prototype feasibility assay for low level detection of methacillin resistant Staphlococcus aureus (MRSA) protein biomarker, Penicillin Binding Protein 2a (PBP2a), using an innovative, patented detection technology. The… More

Full Spectrum Photovoltaic Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Travis Benanti, Materials Scientist – (814) 234-2009
Award Amount: $69,052.00
This proposal addresses the development of multi-junction solar cells for more complete utilization of the full solar spectrum. The approach uses a cell architecture based on an electrode nano-element array and a counter electrode array to achieve optimized light and carrier collection management… More
