Foundational Program to Advance Cell Efficiency II (FPACE II) - Model Systems

Open Date: 01/25/2013

Close Date: 04/08/2013

Funding Organization: Office of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency

Funding Number: DE-FOA-0000806

Summary:

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 these issues.

For more information, see the full solicitation.
