The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator PV System

    SBC: Glint Photonics, Inc.            Topic: DEFOA0001256

    Concentrator PV systems using highly efficient multijunction photovoltaic cells hold out the promise of very low-cost solar electricity generation, but their adoption has been hamstrung by the requirement for bulky mechanical trackers that add cost, diminish land use, increase maintenance, and exclude roof-top installations. The Stationary Wide-Angle Concentrator (SWAC) PV system will provides the ...

  2. GaN Substrate Technology

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Kyma Technologies will develop a cost-effective technique to grow high-quality gallium nitride (GaN) by developing a high growth rate process for creating crystalline GaN boules, which are used as a starting material for semiconductor device manufacturing. Currently, growing boules from GaN seeds is slow, expensive, and inconsistent, which negatively affects manufacturing yield and electronic devi ...
