Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.04
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Ray Chan

MicroLink Devices proposes to integrate its high-efficiency, lightweight, and flexible solar sheet technology to a small unmanned aircraft system (UAS) that will demonstrate a pathway to long endurance flights for several weeks. This will be a breakthrough technology that will enhance the performance and utility of NASA's Airborne Science fleet...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S3.01
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16

The proposed innovation will dramatically improve the performance of tritium-powered betavoltaic batteries through the development of an ultra thin p on n junction composed of indium gallium phosphide coupled to a thin film metal tritide. The thin cell will be built using MicroLink's signature epitaxial lift off technology and standard metalorg...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: H8.03
Budget: 06/10/16 - 12/09/16
PI: Alex Kirk

Double epitaxial lift-off (D-ELO) in conjunction with semiconductor bonding will be leveraged to produce 38% efficient six-junction solar cells. These solar cells will enable optimal performance for future NASA missions that require solar cells with high specific power, high power conversion efficiency, and lower cost than the incumbent solar ce...
