  1. 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.

  2. Exciton Dynamics Simulator

    31 Dec 2012 | | Contributor(s):: Michael Heiber

    Simulates the exciton dynamics in organic photovolatic devices

  3. Failures in Photovoltaic Modules

    16 Apr 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Bermel

    In this talk, I will discuss some of the major sources of performance degradation for common glass-encapsulated PV modules, including crystalline silicon and thin films. The greatest reliability challenges have occurred in the latter, with recent studies showing that thin-film modules operating...

  7. In Search of the Perfect Semiconductor Photon Detector

    19 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Peter Y. Yu

    Photon detectors have many important applications, such as in heat sensing, digital cameras, solar cells and x-ray and gamma-ray detection. So far, the most common detectors are based on elemental semiconductors , such as Si and Ge. However, they are by no means perfect in tackling some of the...

  17. Modeling and Optimization of Polymer Based Bulk Heterojunction (BH) Solar Cell

    08 Feb 2010 | | Contributor(s):: Biswajit ray

    A polymer phase separation model based on Cahn-Hilliard equation and a three-dimensional (3D) coupled exciton/electron/hole transport model in the disordered, phase-segregated morphology so generated, allow us to predict, possibly for the first time, the morphology dependent performance limits...

  18. Nano Carbon: From ballistic transistors to atomic drumheads

    14 May 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Paul L. McEuen

    Carbon takes many forms, from precious diamonds to lowly graphite. Surprisingly, it is the latter that is the most prized by nano physicists. Graphene, a single layer of graphite, can serve as an impenetrable membrane a single atom thick. Rolled up into a nanometer-diameter cylinder--a carbon...
