Description

The Photovoltaic Research Facility explores novel photovoltaic technologies that can sustain military systems, sensors, and gear. Capabilities include a state-of-the-art, variable temperature, ultra-high vacuum-scanning tunnelingmicroscope (UHV-STM) for analysis of surface morphology, localized defect states, and quantum confined states; probe stations for device testing; an internal/external quantum efficiency (IQE/EQE) system; fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy tools for analyzing spectral response in the visible to long wavelength; a near-infrared photoluminescence system; and a class AAA solar simulator system that meets all performance criteria designated as class A, B, or C for spectral match, non-uniformity of irradiance, and temporal instability of irradiance.
