Space Based Solar Power Fuels Vision of Global Energy Security, http://www.space.com/businesstechnology/070919_sps_airforce.html"There's a whole range of science and technology challenges to be pursued. New knowledge and new systems concepts are needed in order to enable space based solar power. But there does not appear, at least at present, that there are any fundamental physical barriers," Mankins explained. Peter Teets,Distinguished Chair of the Eisenhower Center for Space and Defense Studies, said that SBSP must be economically viable with those economics probablynot there today. "But if we can find a way with continued technology development ... and smart moves in terms of development cycles to bring clean energyfrom space to the Earth, it's a home run kind of situation," he told attendees of the meeting. "It's a noble effort," Teets told Space News. There remainuncertainties in SBSP, including closure on a business case for the idea, he added. "I think the Air Force has a legitimate stake in starting it. But the scale of this project is going to be enormous. This could create a new agency ... who knows? It's going to take the President and a lot of political will to go forwardwith this," Teets said.2

 News of the Week SOLAR POWER: Light-Splitting Trick Squeezes More Electricity Out of Sun's Rays, Science 3 Vol. 317. no. 5838, pp. 583 - 584DOI: 10.1126/science.317.5838.583a, http://www.sciencemag.org/cgi/content/full/317/5838/583a?rss=1At a meeting in 2005, DARPA program manager Douglas Kirkpatrick, a physicist with experience in the lighting industry, suggested that the research team'stalented optics unit use recent advances in so-called dichroic materials, which separate light into specific wavelengths. ("Where have you been all my life?"says Kirkpatrick of the eureka moment.) The research team, which included industrial as well as academic partners, took that approach and achieved withoptics a 93% efficiency in processing and splitting the light in as-yet-unpublished tests. Independent officials with the National Renewable EnergyLaboratory in Golden, Colorado, measured the overall solar-cell efficiency under simulated conditions; a separate NREL team built several of the cells usedin the device. The device is based on well-known semiconductors tuned to respond to specific wavelengths using doping and other physical tweaks theresearchers won't reveal. New electronics allowing parallel power generation gave them additional freedom, as cells within modules connected in series produce as much electricity as their weakest link. Each of those advances, however, although promising in the lab, could be pricey to build. Most recentcommercial solar efforts have focused on making cells cheaper to manufacture, not on increasing efficiency. Kirkpatrick says the manufactured cost goal for the program is $2 per peak watt, 45% under the current industry standard. "That's the key to success," says solar energy manager Craig Cornelius of theDepartment of Energy, who says it can take up to 15 years for new solar-cell architectures to make it into the marketplace. But DARPA is hoping for faster results. With the early proof of concept in the bag, research partner DuPont has announced a 3-year commercialization effort with the Delaware team tospend up to $100 million to build prototype devices. Meanwhile, the researchers are continuing work with advanced kinds of cells, including nanotech and bioinspired varieties, hoping later to use better performing materials in what Kirkpatrick calls a "plug and play" approach. "The building blocks are all in place," says Delaware physicist Robert Birkmire.3
