Sandian Selected for Outstanding Engineer Award

The Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Region 6: Southwest Area (encompassing New Mexico, Arizona, California, and Nevada) has selected Dr. Jose Luis Cruz-Campa (in Sandia’s MEMS* Technologies Dept.) as the recipient of their 2014 Outstanding Engineer Award for his “critical technical and leadership contributions to the development of microsystems-enabled PV (MEPV) technology and […]

Video Available of MEPV Talk at September 6th TEDxABQ Event

During the TEDxABQ event, Sandia’s Vipin Gupta (in the Material, Devices, and Energy Technology Dept.) shared his team’s notable Microsystems-Enabled Photovoltaics (MEPV) Grand Challenge work before a packed house at UNM’s Popejoy hall. (View the ~10-minute video.) Outside the auditorium during the mass break sessions, Vipin showed off green LED-MEPV units powered by the New […]

Sandian Selected for Outstanding Young Engineer Award

The Albuquerque Section of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) has selected Dr. Jose Luis Cruz-Campa as the recipient of the 2014 Outstanding Young Engineer Award for his outstanding con­tributions to the electrical engineering profession. A key aspect of Jose Luis’ research program is the use of microfabrication techniques, more commonly used in […]

Materials Science and Engineering Support for Microsystems-Enabled Photovoltaic Grand Challenge Laboratory-Directed Research and Development Project

Sandia’s Coatings and Surface Engineering, Packaging and Polymer Processing, and Organic Materials Science departments in the Materials Engineering Group have provided extensive support for the microsys­tems-enabled photovoltaic (MEPV) grand challenge laboratory-directed research and development (LDRD) project, which is now in its third and final year. Materials Engineering Group materials scientists, precision engineers, and technologists have […]

Sandia, Endicott Interconnect Technologies, EMCORE, International Micro Industries, NREL, Universal Instruments: Solar Glitter

Sandia scientists have developed glitter-sized photovoltaic (PV) cells that have the potential to achieve the cost breakthrough necessary to move solar energy into widespread, portable use. Miniaturized solar cells are produced using Sandia’s microsystems-enabled photovoltaics (MEPV) technology, which employs microdesign and microfabrication techniques common to the semiconductor, liquid-crystal display, and microsystems industries. The PV cells […]
