Manufacturers are employing a wide range of evaporation deposition techniques during cell fabrication.
XsunX is using its thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) process knowledge to revolutionize the solar industry by combining state-of-the-art, sophisticated, magnetic media thin-film manufacturing technologies used by the hard disc drive industry with proven thin-film photovoltaic processes.
This mass production, cross-industry technology breakthrough will increase cell efficiency, improve production speeds and yields, and dramatically lower the cost for solar cells. XsunX’s novel approach bridges the gap between inexpensive thin-film and high efficiency silicon wafer technologies to produce solar cells for multiple market segments and a wide variety of applications. The mass production of individual, high performance, flexible solar cells – like solar building blocks – will allow solar power to finally compete effectively against other sources of electrical energy.
