Silvaco Japan silicon nanowire solar cells modeling software
Simulation software experts Silvaco has won a competitive tender, Japan FUTURE-PV project ATLAS device simulator technology.
The company said Konagai and Miyajima, Tokyo Institute of Technology Laboratory researchers will take advantage of this technology supports simulation silicon nanowire solar cells, especially in the understanding of the field of quantum effects to optimize the structure of the solar cell.
Konagai and Miyajima Laboratory Associate Professor Shinsuke Miyajima said: "ATLAS contains silicon nanowire solar cell simulation needs of many functions, especially in the field of quantum effects for the development of such as the silicon nanowires advanced technical equipment, built for these quantum effects mode is essential., ATLAS will help accelerate our growth plans, we believe. "
Fukushima top-renewable energy photovoltaic innovation research joint center (FUTURE-PV) project recently received the support of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).
The ATLAS software provides 2D and 3D electrical, optical and thermal physical model.
Independent power generation audio broadcast equipment accessories known Eton for Apple iOS devices launched two new products: the Rugged is Rukus, Rukus XL, these two are the solar Bluetooth speaker device and on display at the CES 2013 show .
Larger Rukus XL has 72 square inches of solar receiver panel, only five hours in full sunlight irradiation can last all day. Of course, if you want you can also charge via the AC adapter to charge. In addition, eight full-range speaker unit Rukus XL 22W stereo. The product is the second quarter of 2013, market, priced at $ 200.
In addition, a smaller Rugged is Rukus After 5 hours of full sunlight, can provide eight hours of playback length. The product has an IPX-4 waterproof splash design, outdoor swimming pool, camping, beach use are no problem.
Eton also launched for mobile devices following Boost Solar Battery Pack Solar charging solution for mobile device charging 5000 + mAh solar panels in the 10-hour day view gia can be filled
21st Century Reuters data show that since mid-December 2012, the domestic price of photovoltaic cells is steadily back up the mainstream polysilicon batteries rose more than 0.1 yuan / watt, mainstream monocrystalline silicon wafer prices last week, Central or $ 3.15 mainstream monocrystalline silicon cells pericyclic than an increase of 1.5%. According to reports, the PV full line of products prices rebounded by the support of the demand for solar energy systems in China and Japan: the one hand, the Japanese policies subsidy measures down in March of this year, some manufacturers have felt the strong efforts of orders, on the other hand, China The demand for solar energy systems also pulled up the price of polysilicon.
It is worth noting that the recovery of the domestic PV market demand has been reflected in many corporate orders pulled on. It is understood that the domestic first-line enterprises operating rate of at least 8 percent, part of the full production line enterprises and rush orders labor shortage.
