A Novel Way to Thin-Film Solar Cells?

Abstract:
Applied Quantum Technology is one of a score of start-ups trying to develop low-cost solar cells made from copper indium gallium (di)selenide, a compound that can be printed or deposited on glass or flexible materials.

That has proved a tough challenge and start-ups like MiaSolé, Nanosolar and Solyndra have raised hundreds of millions of dollars to perfect the technology by building propriety solar cell-making machines.

But Michael Bartholomeusz, Applied Quantum Technology's chief executive, claims that by using off-the-shelf machinery from the computer hard drive industry, his company has been able to dramatically cut its capital costs.
