The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is proposing to provide funding to University of South Florida (USF) to develop a novel cadmium telluride (n-CdTe) photovoltaic (PV) cell with enhanced performance capabilities. The project would seek to increase cell efficiency by optimizing the performance parameters of the n-CdTe absorber and a p-type transparent heterojunction partner. The project would be completed over three Budget Periods (BPs), with a Go/No-Go Decision Point in between each BP.
