Engineers and technicians from Ampulse, NREL, and Roth & Rau go over plans for installing parts in the pilot production line for making solar cells via a chemical deposition process.
Ampulse Corporation is installing a pilot production line in the Process Development Integration Laboratory (PDIL) at NREL. It represents a new, less wasteful way of making solar cells and should result in less expensive devices.
Ampulse's pilot production line is nearly complete at NREL's PDIL. If the line can make highly efficient solar cells at low cost, the next step will be a full-sized production plant.
