Lewis M. Fraas

Lewis M. Fraas has been active in the development of Solar Cells and Solar Electric Power Systems for space and terrestrial applications since 1975. In 1978 while at Hughes Research Labs, he published a pioneering paper proposing the InGaP/GaInAs/Ge triple junction solar cell predicting a cell terrestrial conversion efficiency of 40% at 300 suns concentration. This 40% efficiency has now been achieved and this cell is the predominant cell today for space satellites. It is now entering high volume production for terrestrial Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) systems. In 1989, he led the research team at Boeing that demonstrated the first GaAs/GaSb tandem concentrator solar cell, receiving awards from Boeing and NASA for this work. From 1993-present, Dr. Fraas has been President of the solar cell company JX Crystals Inc. He holds degrees from Caltech (B.Sc. Physics), Harvard (M. A. Applied Physics), and USC (Ph.D. EE). Dr. Fraas has written over 350 technical papers, holds more than 50 patents, and is the author of a book entitled Path to Affordable Solar Electric Power & The 35% Efficient Solar Cell (2005). He is co-editor and co-author of a Wiley book entitled Solar Cells and Their Applications (2nd Edition) published in 2010.
