The simple and elegant three bandgaps, one junction device has the potential of significantly improved solar light absorption and higher power output than the III-V triple junction compound semiconductor devices that presently hold the world record for solar efficiency.
IQE, whose manufacturing facility and global headquarters was established in St Mellons, Cardiff in 1988, has recently produced the world's first triple junction devices with a new, patented combination of semiconductor materials.
The multi-band technology incorporates a unique new semiconductor material that can achieve the efficiencies of a triple junction device with the manufacturing cost and simplicity of a single junction device.
Our key technologies include growth of mixed group-V antimonides and quinternary heterostructures, which is very important for most infrared optoelectronic device applications such as type-II superlattice FPAs, GaSb laser diodes, tunnel junction devices, etc.
RoseStreet Labs believes that Berkeley Lab's technology can potentially achieve efficiencies above 48% in a single junction device, and encompasses a breakthrough multi-band material that may significantly reduce the complexity and manufacturing costs associated with high solar efficiencies.
