Abstract
To address the Army Space and Missile Defense Command (SMDC) need for a primary power technology that gathers power from the high-altitude platform environment, such as photovoltaics, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development of the Performance-Optimized Solar Energy Generation (POSEG) technology. The innovations in absorbing solar spectrum in an efficient light-trapping structure to improve solar conversion efficiency offer the POSEG significant advantages, including high specific power (>1000 W/kg) and high power conversion efficiency (>20%)--advantages that are not currently available. The scalable fabrication process developed in Phase I provides low cost (
