Lattice-mismatched-strain-driven, defect-free, 3-D islands, dubbed self-assembled quantum dots (SAQDs), currently provide the most advanced platform for quantum-dot-based devices with successful applications to SAQD lasers and considerable potential for infrared detectors. For the latter, one of the limitations is the short optical path length owing to the difficulties in creation of large numbers of quantum dot layers without formation of structural defects arising from accumulated strain. This limitation can be considerably overcome by creation of an appropriate resonant cavity to enhance the optical field in the SAQD regions. In this paper, we demonstrate resonantcavity- enhanced quantum dot infrared photodetectors in the midinfrared (MIR, 3-5 μm) regime. For effective enhancement, the SAQDs are designed to generate a very narrow peak (δλ/λ ̃10%) in the intraband photocurrent response in the MIR range utilizing short period superlattices as the quantum confining layers. Incorporating such SAQD layers at specific enhanced electric field regions within the resonant cavity comprising a two-pair GaAs/air-gap back mirror and a GaAs surface front mirror, we have obtained QDIP detectivity enhancement of ̃8-12 times. © 2010 IEEE.

The accurate estimation of power production is fundamental to ensuring a solar system is operating correctly. It is also essential to assure the lenders and investors financing the project that the debt will be repaid and expected returns will be achieved, and to assure smooth integration of solar resources on to the grid. In the wind industry, for example, this has been accomplished through regression techniques applied to plots of power production as a function of wind speed. This methodology has not yet been widely used in the solar sector. This paper evaluates whether a linear regression methodology can be used to predict power output in solar, identifies key variables in this regression, and assesses the accuracy of the regression. Amonix CPV systems were used to test and validate the methodology. Copyright © (2011) by the American Solar Energy Society.

Concentrating Photovoltaics has held out the promise of low cost solar electricity for now several decades. Steady progress towards this goal in the 80's and 90's gradually produced more efficient and reliable systems. System efficiency is regarded as the largest factor in lowering the electricity cost and the relatively recent advent of the terrestrial multi-junction solar cell has pressed this race forward dramatically. CPV systems are now exhibiting impressive AC field efficiencies of 25% and more, approximately twice that of the best flat plate systems available today. Amonix inc. has just tested their latest generation multi-junction module design, achieving over 31% DC efficiency at near PVUSA test conditions. Inculcating this design into their next MegaModule is forthcoming, but the expected AC system field efficiency should be significantly higher than current 25% levels. © 2010 American Institute of Physics.

A setup capable of simultaneously measuring I-V curves of a full string and its individual cells has been developed. This setup enables us to measure mismatch loss from individual cells in concert with various string combinations under varying field conditions. Mismatch loss from cells to plates at different off-track angles and mismatch from plates to strings in Amonix system during normal operation have been investigated. © 2012 American Institute of Physics.

Conference Record of the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference | Year: 2010

In 2008 and 2009, Amonix installed 300 kW of its seventh-generation systems in Las Vegas, USA. Use of III-V multijunction cells resulted in a ∼30% reduction in the cost of energy of Amonix CPV solar power plants. AC system efficiencies currently reach 25% and energy yield is over 2500 kW-hr/kW. A performance model has been developed that predicts system output based on the spectral response of the III-V multijunction cell corrected for operating conditions. This model is used to inform ongoing system optimization. Systems installed in 2010 are expected to deliver over 10% more power and energy. © 2010 IEEE.

Conference Record of the IEEE Photovoltaic Specialists Conference | Year: 2012

Concentrator III-V multijunction solar cells from seven vendors have been characterized via indoor flash test, outdoor on-sun test and spectral response. Most vendors have achieved similar efficiency in both indoor flash test and on-sun test. The relative difference among different cell vendors changes in two tests because of their different spectral responses and temperature coefficients. The spectral sensitivity of III-V multijunction cells leads to performance variation in the field that is not always well predicted by traditional indoor flash test or instantaneous on-sun tests. The results for different epitaxial designs and limitations of the test methodologies are presented. The comparative results lead to future design modifications for maximum energy output. © 2012 IEEE.

Progress in Photovoltaics: Research and Applications | Year: 2011

Amonix concentrating photovoltaic (CPV) solar power plants currently demonstrate AC efficiency of over 25% in the field. A model has been developed that predicts system performance based on the spectral response of the III-V multijunction cell corrected for environmental and atmospheric conditions. Historical meteorological data is used to predict future performance at target locations. With the cleaning schedule as the only adjustable variable, energy production has been within 2% of prediction after 9 months of operation. The model is used to improve performance, which is expected to increase by 10% in 2010. These improvements, combined with cost reductions in the MegaModule® design, put the Amonix CPV systems on track to achieve a levelized cost of electricity below US $100/MW-hr by 2012. © 2010 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
