Development of low cost, high quality InGaN photovoltaic devices
Project Member(s): Ton-That, C.
Funding or Partner Organisation: Department of Industry, Innovation and Science (Department of Industry Partnership Fund)
Start year: 2014
Summary: This project aims to develop a collaborative university-industry partnership between University of Technology Sydney (UTS, Australia) and Nanovation (French SME). The project concerns a novel approach to the development of InGaN-based photovoltaics (PV). InGaN PV is a very promising renewable energy technology based on the unparalleled absorption of the solar spectrum, which can be obtained by red-shifting the GaN bandgap (3.4eV) through alloying with In. We will develop new processing techniques to fabricate low cost, high quality InGaN to facilitate the development of inexpensive PV devices.
