ALISO VIEJO, Calif., March 2, 2010 XsunX, Inc. (XSNX), the developer of advanced, thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes, is pleased to announce that the company was asked to participate in the International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology in Berlin, Germany from April 20 22, 2010. Chief Technology Officer Robert Wendt has been invited to present the companys unique cross-industry CIGS (copper indium gallium di selenide) thin-film manufacturing technology to an audience of distinguished scientists and executives from the solar industry.
Taking place during the worlds largest thin-film event Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week this workshop will address a wide range of topics relevant to the growing CIGS industry, including high-deposition rate processes, large-area processes, uniformity and laser scribing as well as longer-term issues such as new materials and structures and tandem cell concepts. It will be held at WISTA on Rudower Chaussee 17 12489 Berlin-Adlershof.
CIGS thin-film technology has attracted the most attention of all the thin-film technologies because it is less expensive than traditional silicon and has a high performance record, said XsunXs Chief Technology Officer Robert Wendt. During the workshop, I will explain how XsunX is working to harness these high performance levels while simultaneously offering a commercially viable manufacturing solution that uses stationary small-area, high-rate, production technologies, that leverage hard disk industry material handling and automation techniques, to provide precise control of the thin-film properties in a production environment.
Working with Intevac, the leader in hard disk manufacturing equipment, to help revolutionize the solar industry, the scientific team at XsunX is combining their thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) process knowledge with Intevacs state-of-the-art magnetic media thin-film manufacturing technologies. The result is a high-productivity, cross-industry technology intended to not only increase cell efficiency levels, but to also improve production speeds and yields thereby, reducing the cost of solar cells.
The workshop will consist of invited presentations from not only Mr. Wendt but also his peers in the industry, including Dr. Michael Powalla of ZSW Stuttgart, Dr.Rommel Noufi of NREL (National Renewable Energy Laboratory) and Professor Hans-Werner Schock of the Helmholtz Zentrum Berlin and Technical University.

XsunX specializes in the development and commercialization of advanced, thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes. We are currently working to develop new proprietary manufacturing systems to deliver low cost solar products based on the use of CIGS (copper indium gallium selenide) solar thin films. Utilizing cross-industry enabling technologies, these systems are being developed to deliver low cost and high yield front end CIGS solar cell manufacturing methods coupled with customized backend solar module assembly and packaging systems.
This CIGS production technology is being designed as a turn-key solution to either enable upgrades to existing infrastructure or to establish new large scale solar manufacturing capacity for the production of CIGS solar cells that can be utilized in a multitude of applications. We plan to offer joint venture manufacturing opportunities for this technology to regional partners in a number of industry types and solar applications.
