About the Author

Lewis M. Fraas, PhD, is the founder and President of JX CrystalsInc. He has spearheaded the development of high-power-densityphotovoltaic cells and complete concentrating photovoltaic andthermophotovoltaic systems. Dr. Fraas wrote the first paperdescribing the forty percent-efficient triple-junction concentratorsolar cell now entering high-volume production, and his group atBoeing demonstrated the first thirty-five percent-efficientdual-junction cell.

Larry D. Partain, PhD, is Director of Marketing and AdvancedTechnology, initiating and managing high-risk/high-payoff R&Dprograms for Varian Medical Systems. A prominent researcher insolar cell and related X-ray imager technology, Dr. Partainrecently led efforts to develop high-performance X-ray andflat-panel imaging medical systems, helping to create over $100million in company sales.
