1. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 5/30/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Andrew M Shore, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: An irradiance-mode absolute differential spectral response measurement system based on a light emitting diode (LED) array is described. The LEDs are coupled to an integrating sphere whose output irradiance is uniform to better than 2 % over an ar ...

2. A novel solar simulator based on a supercontinuum laser for solar cell device and materials characterization
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 5/26/2014
Authors: Tasshi Dennis, John B Schlager, Kristine A Bertness
Abstract: The design, operation, and application of a novel solar simulator based on a high-power supercontinuum fiber laser are described. The simulator features a multisun irradiance with continuous spectral coverage from the visible to the infrared. By ...

3. Interface scattering in polycrystalline thermoelectrics
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/24/2014
Authors: Adrian Popescu, Paul M Haney
Abstract: We study the effect of electron and phonon interface scattering on the thermoelectric properties of disordered, polycrystalline materials (with grain sizes larger than electron and phonons' mean free path). Interface scattering of electrons is treat ...

4. Design Considerations for Enhancing Absorption in Semiconductors on Metals with Surface Plasmon Polaritons
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/5/2014
Authors: Christopher Bohn, Amit Kumar Agrawal, Youngmin Lee, Charles J. Choi, Matthew Davis, Paul M Haney, Henri J Lezec, Veronika A Szalai
Abstract: Surface plasmon polaritons have attracted attention for energy applications such as photovoltaic and photoelectrochemical cells because of their ability to improve optical absorption in thin fi lms. We show that surface plasmon polaritons enhance a ...

5. Normalized Performance Parameters for a Residential Heat Pump in the Cooling Mode with Single Faults Imposed
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 3/3/2014
Authors: William V Payne, Jin Min Cho, Piotr A Domanski
Abstract: The performance of a residential split heat pump in the cooling mode operating under nine faults was described using normalized performance parameters determined from a ratio of the faulty value to the no-fault value obtained from heat pump tests in ...

6. Fast and Reliable Spectral Response Measurements of PV Cells Using Light Emitting Diodes
Topic: Energy Conversion, Storage, and Transport
Published: 1/1/2014
Authors: Behrang H Hamadani, John F Roller, Brian P Dougherty, Howard W Yoon
Abstract: We present a measurement system for absolute differential spectral responsivity of solar cells based on high-powered LED arrays coupled to an optical light guide capable of large area illumination. Two different measurement techniques were developed ...
