We are developing rectifying antenna based solar devices used to capture solar energy with an initial target of twice the efficiency at 20% of the cost and 20% of the weight per watt of current single junction solar cells. We are using multi-wall carbon nanotubes (CNTs) grown in arrays of tiny antennas that are suspended between Aluminum ground/contact lines. In this talk I will cover the design and process we are developing to produce these rectenna arrays and the advantages they will provide to mobile applications.
