FLEXIBLE, LIGHTWEIGHT AMORPHOUS SILICON SOLAR CELLS TUNED FOR AMO SPECTRUM.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: NASA
Principal Investigator: Frank Jeffrey , Principal Scientist
Award Amount: $481,904.00
Abstract:
There is a need in space power system technologies for flexible, lightweight solar arrays with specific performancein w/kg exceeding baseline thin si design. a new type of amorphous silicon solar cell is proposed in which the devices are fabricated and monolithically interconnected on polyimide… More

MAGNETICALLY ENHANCED PLASMA DEPOSITION OF INTRINSIC A-SI:H LAYERS IN ROLL-TO-ROLL SYSTEMS

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1991 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator:
Award Amount: $500,000.00
Abstract:
If thin film a-si solar cells are ever to meet their promise of large area manufacture at low cost, certain problems must be solved. uniform high rate deposition of high quality, pinhole-free intrinsic layers over large areas is one of those problems. r&d on improved reaction chambers is needed for… More

High-Efficiency Amorphous Solar Cells on Polyimide Web

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Frank Jeffrey, President
Award Amount: $99,504.00
Abstract:
Thin film photovoltaic modules fabricated on polymer substrates have a number of very attractive features for space use. Flexible a-Si modules: 1) have shown minimum degradation due to radiation; 2) can have low fabrication costs; 3) have demonstratedvery high power to weight ratios; 4) have high… More
