A next step in the energy transition is to produce green fuels from sunlight. One way to achieve this is via high voltage photovoltaic (PV) devices which can directly drive electrolysis reactions to produce hydrogen or other chemical fuels. Group IV based multijunction (MJ) PV devices are a candidate to function as these high voltage devices.<br...

The development in solar cells began with wafer based cells, also called the first generation photovoltaic technology. Most of these wafer based cells were made of crystalline silicon. As a crystalline silicon cell must be relatively thick to absorb most of the incoming energy, the second generation (thin film solar cells) was introduced. In the...

For the far majority of current photovoltaic devices, photons with an energy below 1.1eV are not utilized. Adding a Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD) processed germanium bottom cell to a multi-junction device has the potential to provide a low-cost boost in conversion efficiency by utilizing a part of this spectral range below 1...

A potential approach to minimizing cabling losses in Photoelectrochemical (PEC) water splitting devices is adapting a wireless stand-alone configuration. With all components integrated into a single device, this configuration also helps in reducing system cost, size, and complexity. The issue with this structure, however, is that the proton...

Multijunction devices based on thin film silicon are useful for a range of applications due to their low costs, better performance at higher temperatures, potential for flexibility, and light weight. One particularly interesting application of such devices is in solar-to-fuel conversion. In light of this, the goal of this thesis was to suggest...

For the continued growth of PV capacity, it will be necessary to store vast amounts of energy to overcome seasonal differences in energy generation. To this end, the conversion of electricity to liquid or gas fuels could play an important role in the future energy system. There are numerous ways to create fuels from solar energy, the...
