Abstract
This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will focus on the development of rad-hard, low cost high efficiency solar cell technology. The objective is to demonstrate the feasibility of manufacturing of novel hybrid nanostructure based photovoltaics, which will utilize innovative concentrator and light conversion technology to produce rad-hard, low cost, high efficiency solar cells. There is a great need for highly efficient, rugged, ultra-lightweight, small volume, and low-cost solar cells. We propose to take advantage of our expertise in III-V semiconductor device fabrication, and employ novel design and fabrication process to realize state-of-the-art nano photovoltaic structures.
