The fall 2015 edition of the Quantum Energy and Sustainable Solar Technologies (QESST) newsletter is available for download.
The newest edition of the publication highlights recent research, educational outreach and industrial outreach for the National Science Foundation and Department of Energy-funded Engineering Research Center based here at ASU.
Research highlights include:
- A QESST scholar at MIT, has developed new simulations of trace metal impurity evolution during crystalline silicon solar cell processing.
- QESST scholars at the Institute of Energy Conversion of the University of Delaware have developed a new model to simulate CuInGaSe2 (CIGS), a high efficiency material used for photovoltaic cells.
- QESST researchers, including ASU’s Sayfe Kiaei, G. Tamizhmani and Zachary Holman, have received a new grant for $18M funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) to lead Partnership Center for Advanced Studies in Energy (PCASE).
- QESST faculty Zachary Holman and Minjoo (Larry) Lee of Yale University were awarded a grant under the NSF Energy for Sustainability program, which focuses on integrating III/V with silicon in tandem solar cells.
