  • The research in this episode was supported by NSF Faculty Early Career Development (CAREER) award #1254662 , Optical and Nanostructural Control of Visibly Transparent Small-Bandgap Excitonic Semiconductors for Integration in Highly-Efficient Transparent Photovoltaics. (nsf.gov)
  • materials
  • Building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) represents the merging of the building materials and solar panel business, with the "integration" part of the equation implying everything from novel forms of attachment to a building through to full-scale monolithic integration of PV layers into a tile or window.

  • When DFT is combined with excited state methods, the resulting first principles calculations are so accurate they can be used to reliably predict many materials properties that are relevant for photovoltaics. (nersc.gov)
  • high
  • Metal chalcogenide compounds of elements cadmium, lead, and copper have attracted considerable interest in the area of photovoltaics due to their tunable bandgap (1-2 eV) and high absorption coefficient above 10 4 cm −1 . (springer.com)
  • power
  • In areas without power lines, photovoltaics have long been considered an economical solution for powering small-scale systems such as solar telephones. (unisci.com)
