Welcome to AMON-RA

The Collaborative Project AMON-RA project was a collaboration project of seven partners, financed by the EU 7th Framework Programme that started in October 2008 and was finished in September 2013. The main goal of the project was to demonstrate a dual-junction photovoltaic cell based on a nanowire architecture. The goal was set to achieve an efficiency of 10%. We succeeded to achieve a top efficiency of 13.8 % under 1 sun illumination. This result is better than any so far reported results for the so-called emerging PV segment according to the NIST efficiency data.

 

The project resulted in a number of publications, where the report on the main result, the high efficiency of our structures, was published in Science: J. Wallentin et al. "InP nanowire array solar cells that achieve 13.8% efficiency through high light absorption".

 

We rate the AMON-RA project as being a great success. Not only that we achieved excellent scientific results, an increased interaction between the project partners and a good technological work paved the way for the goals to be achieved on time.
