Mirror augmented photovoltaic (MAPV) systems utilize low cost mirrors to couple more light into a photovoltaic (PV) absorber. By increasing the light absorbed, they are expected to produce less expensive electricity. As a substrate candidate for back surface reflector mirrors, two grades of PMMA have been exposed to UV stress from two sources at two(More)
—We report on the design, construction, and initial performance measurements of a low-concentration photovoltaic system based on compound parabolic concentrators (CPCs). The system is approximately a 7× concentration system and uses commercially available laser groove buried contact monocrystalline silicon photovoltaic cells. The CPCs are fabricated using a(More)
Replex Plastics aims to develop a low-cost, low-concentration photovoltaic module using a metallized acrylic reflector designed for use with an inclined single-axis tracker. An asymmetric compound parabolic concentrator is developed and analyzed optimizing the many factors impacting the design, such as tracking strategy, manufacturing process, and cell(More)
The ability of silicon micromachining to produce small, precision, movable parts provides an opportunity for MEMS component use in optical communications networks [1,2]. To address this potential market, Analog Devices has developed the Optical iMEMS ® process for fabricating MEMS optical components with integrated, on-chip electronics. While this process(More)
We have developed a producer cell line that generates lentiviral vector particles of high titer. The vector encodes the Wiskott-Aldrich syndrome (WAS) protein. An insulator element has been added to the long terminal repeats of the integrated vector to limit proto-oncogene activation. The vector provides high-level, stable expression of WAS protein in(More)
In develo p in g p hotovoltaic (PV) technolo gy , it is crucial to p rovide lower cost PV p ower. One of the useful methods is to increase p ower out p ut of conventional modules since the major costs (module manufacturin g , mounts, wirin g , installation labor, etc) tend to scale with s y stem area, and increased p ower out p ut due to im p roved li g ht(More)
This paper presents the human-centred design approach followed throughout the development of the <i>Responsive Dome Environment</i>, an interactive multi-sensory space designed to elicit social communication between children and their parent or carer. The study aims to recognise the value of participant voice, using an action research approach which is(More)
