Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 09-2-T3.01
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes developing a space solar cell having record efficiency exceeding 40% (AM0) by the introduction of nanowires within the active region of the current limiting sub-cell. The introduction of these nanoscale features will enable realization of an intermediate band solar cell (...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 10-1-T3
Budget: 01/01/10 - 12/31/10

Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells within the active region of the wide-gap base ma...
