1. Large-area irradiance-mode spectral response measurements of solar cells by a light-emitting-diode- based integrating sphere source
Topic: Energy Conservation
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. Thermochromic Phase Transitions in VO2-based Thin Films for Energy-Saving Applications
Topic: Energy Conservation
Published: 5/14/2014
Authors: Sara Cordero Barron, Justin M Gorham, Martin L Green
Abstract: The thermochromic transition in vanadium dioxide has potential application as a smart energy-saving window coating, but the temperature of the transition must be depressed from 68°C to Earth ambient temperatures by the incorporation of transition met ...
