Award List:

SBIR Phase I: Advanced Semitransparent CdTe PV

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: NSF
Principal Investigator: Alvin D. Compaan
Award Amount: $149,999.00
This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop ultra-thin CdTe solar cells by improving the back-contact interface, which facilitates the transport of positive charge carriers (holes) into the back contact electrode and simultaneously reflect negative charge carriers… More

Transparent Back Contacts for Thin CdTe-Based Tandem Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: DOE
Research Institution: The University of Toledo
Principal Investigator: Alvin D. Compaan, Dr.
Award Amount: $100,000.00
RI Contact:
CdTe cells have excellent potential for use as top cells in multijunction (tandem) thin-film solar cell structures, but their use is limited by the lack of high performance transparent back contacts to the CdTe. This project will build 1) on recent advances by the Heben group at the University of… More
