Concentrated GaAs, although more efficient, is very far away from large-scale production. Even when all the quirks are worked out, i would think the technology will be licensed/adopted by a larger player in solar. I do not see an upstart like EMKR being the ONE to bring this to market. To wit, Boeing/Spectralab is working on the same technology and is getting efficiencies as good as or better as NREL (the technology EMKR is using). see here: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/a/a4/PVeff%28rev110707%29d.pngAnd then there is CITRON . . .
