Thin Film Intelligence Brief

Feb 02, 2012   |   by Katherine Steiner Dicks   |   PV Insider

Solar-Tectic has been granted a world-wide exclusive license for a method of manufacturing single crystal silicon thin-films on ordinary glass over a large area, thus allowing for the commercialization of single crystal silicon thin-film solar cells for the first time.

The Dartmouth invention was initially inspired by a related technology disclosed by the late Dr. Praveen Chaudhari, renowned materials scientist and winner of the National Medal of Technology. Solar-Tectic had a sponsored research agreement with the College.

A patent application for this invention has been filed by Dartmouth with the United States Patent Office.
