High specific power flexible integrated IMM photovoltaic blanket, Phase I

Completed Technology Project

Project Introduction

High specific power flexible integrated IMM photovoltaic blanket, Phase I
Originally designed for space applications, multi-junction solar cells have a high overall power conversion efficiency (>30%) which compares favorably to amorphous silicon, CIGS and bulk heterojunction photovoltaic devices which are limited to <10%. Recent advances in manufacturing of Inverted Metamorphic Multi-junction (IMM) solar cells have opened new opportunities to greatly improve the specific power of the devices by means of removal of the epitaxial substrate.
