Solar3D, Inc. is developing a breakthrough 3-dimensional solar cell technology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity. Up to 30% of incident sunlight is currently reflected off the surface of conventional solar cells, and more is lost inside the solar cell materials. Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, our innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. This next generation solar cell will be dramatically more efficient, resulting in a lower cost per watt that will make solar power affordable for the world.

Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, Solar3D's innovative solar cell technology utilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. The company's management believes that this breakthrough solar cell will dramatically change the economics of solar energy.

The company’s analysis indicates that a typical 17% efficient solar cell performs more like a 5% efficient cell when light is shining 20 degrees from the side, such as during the morning and evening hours. The company estimates that its Solar3D cell can maintain its high 25% efficiency for a longer period of time and can generate 250% of the power output of conventional solar cells. This translates to an estimated 40% reduction in the payback period of a fully installed Solar3D panel array!

       Description:  A three dimensional solar cell composed of a semiconductor body that has a substantially flat bottom surface, and shaped trenches formed in an arrayed manner along its top side. Thus, multiple pillars are thereby formed in the      semiconductor body extending toward the top side of the semiconductor body. A light collecting material fills the shaped trenches along the top side of the semiconductor body and forms a substantially flat light receiving top surface parallel to the bottom surface of the semiconductor body. Each of at least some of the trenches are structured such that there exists at least one point on the substantially flat light receiving surface that if a light ray is incident on that point, the light ray, if remaining within the corresponding trench, as opposed to entering the semiconductor body, will be redirected upwards at least after a fourth reflection on neighboring pillars.

       Appl. No:     
High efficiency three dimensional solar power systems are disclosed. One example solar power system includes light collectors and first and second photovoltaic diodes arranged to receive light from the light collector. The photovoltaic diodes are in spaced opposition to each other to receive reflected portions of light from each other.

Changwan Son, Ph.D. - Director of Technology 
Dr. Changwan Son, is an internationally published and recognized expert in the field of photonics and optoelectronic devices. His most recent post-doctoral research work at the University of California at Santa Barbara involves a novel low voltage semiconductor laser for use as nano-sized optical interconnects to replace metal wires inside high speed microprocessors and telecommunication devices. The design, based on metal slab waveguides, is the first in the world. He was responsible for the complete lifecycle of the project from the initial investigation and design, to computer modeling, to fabricating a working prototype. He also designed manufacturing processes and testing techniques for its commercial production. His breakthrough work has been published in Integrated Photonics and Nanophotonics Research and Applications, and the Lasers and Electro Optics Society.
