Apparatus for Optimizing Photovoltaic Solar Manufacturing Efficiency through Real-Time Process Feedback and Spectral Binning of Cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Greg Horner, Dr.
Award Amount: $987,094.00
Abstract:
Novel, inline measurement techniques are needed to improve the quality and performance of new solar cells. Manufacturers today measure cell performance inline under white light conditions, but are unable to obtain the cell response as a function of wavelength without extensive offline testing. They… More
