Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The broader impact/commercial potential of this Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase II project goes well beyond lowering the metallization costs for silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells. In the PV space, the introduction of nickel based metallization pastes can make solar cell modules cheaper and more sustainable. With global demand for e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2012
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project will study the feasibility of using abundant elements in metallization pastes for crystalline silicon solar cells. Currently, silver-based pastes dominate the market because they do not oxidize and can be processed at high temperatures. Unfortunately, these pastes contain a large fra...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 05 A-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

The nations future energy supply, loss of its manufacturing base to foreign countries, and global climate change are three of our countrys most urgent problems. Renewable energy sources that can be cost effectively implemented on a large scale, domestically produced and have minimal impact on the environment are necessary for the countrys health...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: NM-2010
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to develop low-cost solution-processed transparent conducting electrodes for tandem solar cell applications. Tandem solar cells can be comprised of two vertically stacked thin film solar cells that are each designed to absorb different regions of the solar spectrum, allowing an ...
