Award List:

Wide Bandgap Nanostructured Space Photovoltaics

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / STTR / Phase I
Agency: NASA
Research Institution: Rochester Institute of Technology
Principal Investigator: David V. Forbes, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,975.00
RI Contact: N/A
Abstract:
Firefly, in collaboration with Rochester Institute of Technology, proposes an STTR program for the development of a wide-bandgap GaP-based space solar cell capable of efficient operation at temperatures above 300oC. Efficiency enhancement will be achieved by the introduction of InGaP quantum wells… More
