Abstract:
Dyesol of Queanbeyan, New South Wales, Australia selects Mystic Management Systems' quality management software system ensur to control quality documentation

Document Control for Global Leader in Dye Solar Cell Technology

Norwich, CT | Posted on October 15th, 2008

After careful review and consideration Dyesol selected Mystic Management Systems' web-based application ensur to control quality documentation and manage other production aspects.

Dyesol has plans to use ensur to manage its ISO 9001:2000 process and the system generated numbering process to control Dyesol's document numbers. The web-based nature and application independence of ensur will allow Dyesol to utilize their quality documents across the globe.

"The attention to detail and superior quality of customer service separated Mystic Management Systems from the competition. We delivered a test environment to Dyesol that had with it on demand support for any questions Dyesol had, this separated Mystic Management Systems from the local competition," said Erroin A. Martin, Vice President, Sales. "Throughout the entire evaluation process Mystic Management Systems delivered when called upon."

About Dyesol

Dyesol is leading provider of Dye Solar Cell Technology.

Leaves of plants are tiny factories in which sunlight converts carbon dioxide gas and water into carbohydrates and oxygen. They are not very efficient however but are very effective over a wide range of sunlight conditions. In spite of the low efficiency and the fact that the leaves must be replaced, the process has worked for hundreds of millions of years, and forms the primary energy source for all life on earth.

Since the 1970's, attempts have been made to create a better solar cell based on this principle. There were early attempts to cover crystals of semiconductor titanium dioxide with a layer of chlorophyll. However, the electrons were reluctant to move through the layer of pigment, so the efficiency of the first solar cells sensitised in this way was about 0.01%.

Then in 1988 at EPFL in Switzerland, Michael Graetzel discovered that nanotechnology could overcome the problem. Instead of using a single large titanium dioxide (titania) semiconductor, he worked with a sponge of small particles, each about twenty nanometres in diameter, coated with an extremely thin layer of pigment. This method increased the effective surface area available for absorbing the light by 'many times'- now the sunlight was efficiently converted into an electric current.

Dyesol's team has developed this invention to a range of commercial product solutions. Now, less than 15 years after the DSC effect was successfully demonstrated in Switzerland, manufacturing, prototyping and research equipment for 3rd Gen DSC is available from the Australian company Dyesol.
