Mobile Power: Using the World’s Thinnest and Most Efficient Solar

Thin gallium-arsenide (GaAs) solar cells manufactured through epitaxial liftoff can offer high-efficiency, reduced costs and high power to weight ratios perfect for UAV applications. Alta Devices, in particular, is one thin-film GaAs manufacturer which holds world records for terrestrial solar cell conversion efficiency of single junction cells. As a result, this solar technology is capable of increasing UAV endurance indefinitely in some instances. This talk will provide an overview of the different solar technologies available and demonstrate the advantage of thin-film GaAs for mobile power applications.
