Award List:

Conductive ZnMgO Enabling High-Efficiency Wide-Bandgap Photovoltaics

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,857.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Lawrence Woods, Program Manager
Abstract:
Ascent Solar Technologies (AST) proposes to develop atmospheric pressure chemical vapor deposition (APCVD) of zinc-magnesium-oxide (ZnMgO) as an n-type transparent conducting oxide (TCO) for the top contact that will match the material properties of new buffer and window layers being developed for… More

CdSe Top Cells Enabling CdSe/CIGS Tandem Junction Photovoltaics

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$99,616.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / OSD
Principal Investigator:
Lawrence Woods, Program Manager
Abstract:
Ascent Solar Technologies (ITN) proposes to take the next step in spacecraft solar array development, building upon previous development to make the definitive thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) device for high-efficiency (> 20%) and high-specific power (greater than 2000 W/kg) when combined with… More

Enabling High Operational Efficiencies with Mid-Bandgap AgCIGS on Modified High-Temperature Capable, Lightweight and Flexible PBO Substrates

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$149,614.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Lawrence Woods, Senior Scientist – (720) 872-5135
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: This phase I project will develop and merge the different technologies to reduce the defect-density of mid-bandgap (1.4 eV) chalcopyrite based solar absorbers to enable>15% efficient modules (at standard test conditions) on lightweight and flexible polymer substrates. As an added… More

Enabling High Operational Efficiencies with Mid-Bandgap AgCIGS on Modified High-Temperature Capable, Lightweight and Flexible Substrates

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2013 / SBIR / Phase II
Award Amount:
$748,807.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Lawrence Woods, Senior Scientist – (720) 872-5135
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Phase II will leverage the success of Phase I, as well as integrate advances from internal programs, to scale up development of mid-bandgap (1.4 eV) chalcopyrite-based PV. We will optimize chemistries of the device, as well as enable increased temperature for reduced the defect density by… More
