EISG Project Title: Development of Low Cost High Efficiency Heterojunction Organic Solar Cell Using Inkjet and Screen Printing Techniques

EISG Grant Number: 03-04

PIER Area: Renewable Energy Technologies

Principal Investigator: Ghassan Jabbour

Contact Information: Phone: (520) 626-8324, email: gej@optics.arizona.edu

Organization: University of Arizona

Grant Amount: $75,000

Grant Term: 12 Months

 

Project Description:

         Proposes to determine the feasibility of using the combination of inkjet and screen-printing technologies to fabricate low cost organic solar cells. .

 

Proposed Outcomes:

         An all printed organic solar cell having efficiency greater than 4% will be fabricated and tested as part of the project.

 

Anticipated Benefits:

         Addresses the need for low cost, flexible thin film solar cells with higher efficiency that would open up additional market applications for PV power generation.

 

         Potential to reduce the cost per kWh from organ solar cell systems by using low cost fabrication technologies.
