With this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA), the Department of Energy (DOE) SunShot Initiative is soliciting
collaborative research teams to define and fabricate model systems that utilize a single p-n junction device structure
and have the potential to approach Shockley-Queisser power conversion efficiency limits (for a chosen bandgap and
absorber material). The emphasis of this FOA is assembling cohesive and highly diverse teams of experts within and
outside the PV community who can achieve the goals of creating a model system concept and a subsequent device that
can approach theoretical limits. DOE SunShot anticipates significant collaboration between experts in fundamental
materials, characterization, device physics, ab-initio simulations, and PV device integration to adequately address
For more information, see the full solicitation.
