EMC 2011 PLENARY SPEAKER
Plenary Speaker: Wladek Walukiewicz
Wladek Walukiewicz, senior staff scientist, Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, will present "New Concepts and Materials for Solar Energy Conversion" on Wednesday, June 21, 8:30 a.m. Corwin Pavilion
Efficient conversion of solar photons into other forms of energy has become one of the primary objectives of the modern science and technology. In the presentation, Walukiewicz will briefly review the various large scale energy related research projects at Berkeley. The core presentation will focus on methods to engineer the energy band structure of semiconductor materials for specific energy related applications. He will discuss recent progress on applications of group III-nitride semiconductor alloys for full solar spectrum, high efficiency multi-junction solar cells. The second part of the presentation will focus on the recent advances in using highly mismatched semiconductor alloys for intermediate band solar cells. Walukiewicz will offer the most recent results on demonstration of the first intermediate band photovoltaic device. Finally, he will discuss potential applications of the highly mismatched alloys for the photoelectrochemical solar water splitting.
Walukiewicz's presentation was developed in collaboration with the Solar Energy Research Group and is supported by the Division of Materials Science and Engineering, U.S. Department of Energy.
