Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 13c
Budget: 06/12/17 - 03/11/18

Solar module warranties are typically 25 years or longer, a striking reliability requirement that allows only a slow performance degradation with time. There are very few products built today that are required to exhibit this type of longevity. In the past decade, to improve the quality of their products, high-performance cell manufacturers deve...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10e
Budget: 07/27/15 - 07/26/17

Novel, inline measurement techniques are needed to improve the quality and performance of new solar cells. Manufacturers today measure cell performance inline under white light conditions, but are unable to obtain the cell response as a function of wavelength without extensive offline testing. They are also unable to extract detailed spatial map...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 10 E-2012
Budget: 01/01/12 - 12/31/12

Proposed is the development of a non-contact spectral response (Quantum Efficiency) system capable of monitoring critical process parameters in the solar manufacturing line. The development will leverage Tau Science Corporations extensive experience in photovoltaic metrology and its proprietary FlashQE product line. FlashQE is an LED-based, spec...
