  6. Fast, Low Kerf-loss Wafering of Silicon Ingots for Low-cost Solar Power

    SBC: Nielson Scientific LLC            Topic: 11b

    Silicon wafers are the single largest cost component within solar photovoltaic modules. To maintain the cost reduction targets outlined in industrial roadmaps, wafer costs need to be significantly reduced. Reducing the cost of wafers requires reducing the kerf-loss and wafer thickness while increasing throughput in tools for processing silicon ingots into wafers. The proposed technology augments t ...

  7. 3D printing of High Precision Radiation Filters for next generation Cosmic Background (CMB) studies.

    SBC: Obsidian Advanced Manufacturing LLC            Topic: 31h

    The next generation of Cosmic Ray Background detectors require large area filters in the microwave part of the spectrum between 100 to 300 Gigahertz. These filters are essential to the extremely sensitive detection of the cosmic background radiation at the level of one part in a billion and will require precise fabrication of metallic structures on a polymer substrate. These filters will be placed ...
