ANALYSIS SEES MANY PROMISING PATHWAYS FOR SOLAR PHOTOVOLTAIC POWER
March 30, 2015
The following information was released by the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT): In a broad new assessment of the status and prospects of solar photovoltaic technology, MIT researchers say that it is "one of the few renewable, low-carbon resources with both the scalability and the technological maturity to meet ever-growing global demand for electricity." Use of solar photovoltaics has been growing at a phenomenal rate: Worldwide installed capacity has seen sustained growth averaging 43 percent per year since 2000. To evaluate the prospects for sustaining such growth, the MIT researchers look at possible constraints on materials availability, and propose a system for evaluating the many competing approaches to improved solar-cell performance.

March 24, 2015
The following information was released by Stanford Engineering: By Tom Abate | Stanford Engineering Computer chips, solar cells and other electronic devices have traditionally been based on silicon, the most famous of the semiconductors, that special class of materials whose unique electronic properties can be manipulated to turn electricity on and off the way faucets control the flow of water. There are other semiconductors. Gallium arsenide is one such material, and it has certain technical advantages over silicon - electrons race through its crystalline structure faster than they can move through silicon.
