This Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) Phase I project aims to demonstrate 10% energy conversion efficiency for Organic Photovoltaics (OPVs) through the design and synthesis of new acceptor materials. Polymer-based OPV technology is ideal for clean and affordable energy generation because of… More

Development of roll-roll processed, low-cost, and flexible organic solar cells

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Vishal Shrotriya, Director of OPV Lifetime – (626) 456-8090
Award Amount: $99,920.00
Solar cells based on organic materials, also called organic photovoltaic cells (OPVs), have attracted broad research interest due to their low-cost, flexibility and light weight. However, OPV technology remains in pre-commercial stage primarily due to the lack of manufacturing process. Despite a lot… More

Development of light-weight, low-cost and high specific power organic solar modules with high radiation hardness

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
