  1. Novel Low Cost Processes for Production of Crystalline Silicon Wafers for Photovoltaic Industry

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 28

    ¿Clean energy¿ is attracting more and more interest, which in turn exerts cost pressure on photovoltaic (PV) manufacturers for more efficient solar panel production. This project will develop a cost-effective technology to produce PV-grade silicon wafers. In Phase I, a non-oxide-based reuseable crucible was developed for the production of high purity, low oxygen content crystalline silicon ing ...

  3. An Innovative Technique of Preparing Solar Grade Silicon Wafers from Metallurgical Grade Silicon by In-Situ Purification

    SBC: GT Equipment Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 39a

    75655S The photovoltaics (PV) industry is having difficulty finding enough raw materials to match its rapid growth. In addition, traditional sources of secondary grade polysilicon are no longer readily available at inexpensive prices. Reducing the cost of solar silicon wafers is the key to lowering the price of crystalline silicon solar cells. This project will develop a single-step wafer fabr ...

  4. Germanium-76 Isotope Separation by Cryogenic Distillation

    SBC: Medical Isotopes, Inc.            Topic: 46b

    78790S The current method for germanium isotope separation, needed for rare particle and rare decay searches in nuclear physics research, is electromagnetic separation using calutrons, a process that has the disadvantage of low separation capacity and high energy cost. This project will build a cryogenic distillation column in which larger quantities of germanium isotopes can be separated at a s ...

  10. ALL-METAL, DEMOUNTABLE CRYOGENIC SEAL

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    IN MOST CRYOGENIC SYSTEMS, THE PIPING JOINTS IN COLD REGIONSOF THE SYSTEM ARE MADE BY WELDING OR SOLDERING. THIS IS ESSENTIAL BECAUSE EXISTING DESIGNS OF CRYOGENIC PIPE SEALS CANNOT BE RELIED ON NOT TO LEAK. ANY SUCH LEAKS INTO THE COLD BOX REDUCE THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE INSULATION, THEREBY REDUCING THE EFFICIENCY OF THE REFRIGERATOR. WELDEDJOINTS MAKE REPLACEMENT OF COMPONENTS DIFFICULT AND HAVE ...
