Ascent Solar Wins Another USAF Research Program

Littleton, Colorado [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] Ascent Solar Technologies, Inc. has been selected by the U.S. Air Force to develop a new transparent conductive oxide (TCO) material to serve as the top electrical contact for flexible monolithically integrated thin-film, copper-indium-gallium-selenium (CIGS) solar cells. The Ascent Solar innovation involves developing a new material system that will be deposited using a novel roll-to-roll process. The new process offers the potential for a higher-quality, lower-cost alternative to the TCO materials and deposition methods presently used. The program will be performed under a Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) contract.
