United States : MAGNOLIA develops NANOTECHNOLOGY to raise performance and lower costs on solar cell performance

July 24, 2014

With the aim of increasing performance and lower costs, using nano-structured optical coatings that can minimize reflection losses and enhance light trapping, Magnolia Solar declared that it is starting up the application of nanotechnology for both flexible CIGS and III-V solar cells.

As per the US firm, it is formulating the way to follow a novel nano structured designs to the absorber layer of high-performance III-V and CIGS solar cells.

"Emerging technical approaches for achieving flexible photovoltaic power include the growth of copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) cells on flexible substrates and the epitaxial liftoff (ELO) of III-V devices onto thin metal film," said Roger Welser, Magnolia s CTO.

Our office in the Albany NanoTech complex allows our technical staff to work very closely with top researchers at the CNSE/SUNYIT facilities which have directly led to innovative patent pending designs using nanotechnology. This is helping us to meet our goals of high-efficiency thin film solar cells," said Ashok K. Sood, president and CEO of Magnolia Solar Corporation.
