Micro-scale concentrated photovoltaics: A technologically disruptive approach to flat-panel solar cells?

Open Access Open Access

Abstract

The potential benefits of solar cell architectures that exploit integrated micro-optical concentration are examined. An associated new development thrust at the US Department of Energy’s Advanced Research Projects Agency-Energy (ARPA-E) is reviewed.
