Getting a prototype to work in the near IR is fine, but the peak of the solar spectum is what counts and that means much better manufacturing control of the lower surface. Was the simulation for the peak? Sierra Hiker/ A CA type.

I'm a coauthor on this work. While my personal area of expertise is in theory and simulations, we also built a physical cell and showed that quantum efficiencies were enhanced specifically in the red and near-infrared wavelengths, as predicted.

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
