Abstract:

Development of inverted metamorphic multi-junction IMM solar cell technology has raised deployment issues regarding structure fracture from stress induced by packaging, vibration during transport, and operation. The proposed program involves development of a technique for fabricating carbon nanotube CNT metal matrix composites MMC to replace traditional electrodes in IMM solar cells. The fabrication of the MMCs will utilize CNT materials i.e. SWCNTs, MWCNTs, etc. from varying synthetic techniques, including novel methods of CNT deposition and metal to achieve stable composites.
