Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2009
Budget: 01/01/09 - 12/31/09

This Small Business Technology Transfer Program Phase I project is to develop a manufacturing process for precisely controlled application of layers with precisely controlled nanostructure leading to a scalable multi-layered, nanostructured anti-reflective coating for use on commercial photovoltaic modules. Sol-gel chemistry will be employed as...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

Solar cells made from a copper-indium-gallium-diselenide (CIGS) absorber layer are more than 100X better at absorbing light than an equivalent absorber layer made from silicon; consequently, CIGS solar cells can be constructed as thin film devices, with less material usage and potentially less cost than conventional silicon-based solar cells. A...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2006
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

A reduction in the cost of solar cell manufacturing is needed to accelerate penetration into the renewable energy market. To address this neeed, this project will develop a low-cost, photovoltaic solar module based on thin-film, CuInGaSe2 (CIGS) nanostructured materials, which are deposited by high-throughput roll-to-roll printing onto lightwei...
