Epitaxial Strategies for High Power Optically Pumped Vertical External Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers and Metamorphic Antimonide Solar Cells
05 Dec 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Ganesh Balakrishnan
We present antimonide-based photovoltaic cells grown on GaAs and Silicon substrates for use as sub-cells in metamorphic multi-junction solar cells. These antimonide cells, based on GaSb, are designed to absorb near-infrared photons. The GaSb layer is grown on either GaAs or Silicon substrates.
Nanotechnology and the NAE Grand Challenge Make Solar Energy Economical
20 Jun 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Edward Davis, Virginia A. Davis
This group of materials is designed to provide a framework to teach students in an introductory engineering course basic nanotechnology concepts. The materials use the NAE grand challenge “Make Solar Energy Economical” to underpin the need and potential for nanotechnology to address...

21 Mar 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Mohammad Ryyan Khan, Xin Jin, Muhammad A. Alam
The tool is designed to calculate the thermodynamic performance limit of single-junction and multi-junction solar cells.
Diffusion-Reaction Modeling of Cu Migration in CdTe Solar Devices
26 Oct 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Da GUO, Tian Fang, Richard Akis, Dragica Vasileska
IWCE 2015 presentation. In this work, we report on development of one-dimensional (1D) finite-difference and two- dimensional (2D) finite-element diffusion-reaction simulators to investigate mechanisms behind Cu- related metastabilities observed in CdTe solar cells . The evolution of CdTe...
Thermionic Escape in Quantum Well Solar Cell
16 Dec 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Nicolas Cavassilas, Fabienne Michelini, Marc Bescond
This theoretical work analyzes the photogeneration and the escape of carrier in InGaN/GaN core-shell nanowires. Our electronic transport model considers quantum behaviors such as confinement, tunneling, electron-phonon scattering and electron-photon interactions. The large lattice mismatch...
