Photon-Enhanced Thermionic Emission (PETE) Device to Increase Solar Energy Efficiencies

In support of developing a new method to acquire electricity from sunlight that combines both the photon (quantum) and thermal approaches, called Photo-Enhanced Thermionic Emission. Funding will be used to identify optimal materials, design, fabricate, and test Photo-Enhanced Thermionic Emission devices, and benchmark their efficiencies and cost per watt compared to other technologies.
