JA Solar Relying on Innovalight to Improve Efficiency to 18.9%

Abstract:
Innovalight has developed a silicon ink composed of "perfectly crystalline silicon particles 5nm in size" in an ink-like matrix, which Innovalight's CEO Conrad Burke claims can boost the efficiencies of crystalline silicon wafers from one to perhaps two percentage points. In a market where a tenth of a percentage point gain in efficiency often warrants a press release, a one percent increase is significant. The use of the ink in a production line could conceivably transform a 30-megawatt line into a 35-megawatt line.

Back to JA Solar: The process that incorporated the Innovalight ink is the sonorously named SECIUM process and has allowed JA Solar to announce R&D efficiency results of greater than 18.5 percent at the module level. Importantly, the modification to the production line is accomplished with "one step added to a conventional cell line" according to Shan, and it "can be mass produced cost-effectively."
