Short description of the organization (max 12 lines): Ryazan state radioengineering university( RSREU), a state institution of higher vocational education, was founded in 1951 and nowadays serves as an important specialized scientific and educational system. The university has available modern scientific and educational basis. Department branches can be found on the basis of industrial enterprises, scientific research institutes, design offices. Research and development projects are actively carried out at the university, it functions as head organisation in a number of scientific engineering research programs in Russia.
Expertise offered The project realization will include several steps:
  1. Development of mathematical model and construction of upgraded metallurgical-grade silicon (UMG-Si) solar cell.
  2. Impact assessment of silicon purification degree and construction parameters on solar cell specifications.
  3. Development of production technology and mathematical model of UMG-Si solar cell production processes.
  4. Creation of experimental UMG-Si solar cell samples.
  5. Investigation of experimental UMG-Si solar cell samples.
  6. Optimization of experimental UMG-Si solar cell sample construction using the data obtained under point 5.
Works 1,2 can be carried out by the university; 3,5,6 - are to be made jointly, and work 4 is to be made by your company and European partners. The result of this work will be UMG-Si solar cell construction with efficiency of about 14-15 % and its production technology. Using cheaper UMG-Si as a raw material will allow to decrease significantly electricity cost (per our estimation – up to USD 1.0/W) compared with the traditional multi- and monocrystalline silicon cells.
