Research Institution

In this program we will mate the recent advances in thin film solar energy technology with state of the art, thin film capacitor technology to produce a monolithically integrated thin film solar rechargeable ultracapacitor. Our program will result in a device that will store large quantities of energy that will be recharged by the sun. We will succeed by monolithically fabricating dye sensitized solar cells with thin film ultracapacitor technology. To the best of our knowledge no other group in the world is working on this concept. This program will result in a commercial product that will have wide appeal for military, civilian and non-military government projects. Townsend Science & Engineering has reduced this technology to practice on Lexan thin film plastics. Even at modest efficiencies up to 1 kilowatt per kilogram charging capacity is possible in the near future
