Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Boston University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF09-BT20
Budget: 03/31/10 - 12/31/10

This proposal addresses the attainment of conversion efficiency exceeding 35% in a single-junction solar cell. Non-absorption of long wavelength photons and thermallization of short wavelength photons accounts for the loss of over half of the incident energy in a single junction cell; however, a large fraction of this energy could be captured i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to integrate up and down conversion materials into a single photonic device to solve the problem of mismatch between the solar spectrum and solar cells formed from single absorbers such as silicon. Cooperative nonradiative energy transfer between rare-earth dopants will be empl...
