NanoHorizons’ Patented Technology Enables Inexpensive PV

State College, Pennsylvania [RenewableEnergyAccess.com] NanoHorizons, Inc. announced an agreement with Solarity for the exclusive use of NanoHorizons’ patented solar cell technology. The specific terms were not disclosed. The licensed technology’s device design uses a nanoscale-engineered structure to perform both absorption and collection. This enables photovoltaic device builders to use an optimally thick layer of absorption material while simultaneously requiring a collection distance of only tens of nanometers vs. tens of microns in today’s best two-layer cells. This innovation eliminates the impact of absorption layer thickness on collection distance, a fundamental limitation in photovoltaic device design. Solarity currently plans to produce test products within 18-24 months.
