Measurement System Advances Next-Gen Solar Devices
A new versatile measurement system devised by researchers at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) accurately and quickly measures the electric power output of solar energy devices, capabilities useful to researchers and manufacturers working to develop and make next-generation solar energy cells.
Innovative devices that convert sunlight to electric power more efficiently and cost effectively than the current generation of solar cell technology are the objects of a global pursuit — means to reducing fossil-fuel consumption and to securing pole position in the competition for fast-growing international markets for clean energy sources.
