  • Still Going Green: A New Energy Resource Produced for Commercial Use
    visible light sources, not just sunlight. The next-generation photovoltaic material produces electricity through a process that is roughly analogous to photosynthesis in plants. DSSC modules are manufactured by printing a thin layer of titanium dioxide onto a layer of film and then, through the use
  • Particle Size and Shape Analysis of Abrasives in Solar Industry (.pdf)
    The photovoltaic effect is the ability of certain materials, particularly semi-conductors, to transform luminous energy into electricity. Since last five years, the need of photovoltaic cells is growing. Photovoltaic cells or solar cells are made from a crystalline or amorphous material, either
  • Chipmakers Put PV in the Spotlight
    At least three big-name semiconductor makers - IBM, Intel, and National Semiconductor -- are getting into the solar-cell or PV-manufacturing-equipment market. Tokyo Ohka Kogyo Co. Ltd. and IBM say they are collaborating on processes, materials, and equipment suitable for producing CIGS
  • Solar cells will double as camouflage
    can't compete. The photovoltaic products are literally printed onto rolls of plastic. Konarka scientists inject a dye into titanium dioxide, a white pigment commonly used in toothpaste and paint. Dye applied to a flexible material absorbs energy from both the sun and indoor light. This

    for $250 million IPO First Solar Inc., a supplier of solar modules, said that it plans to make an initial public offering (IPO) of its common stock. Spartan recall could cost Xilinx $30 million, analyst says An analyst said Xilinx' recent Spartan-3 recall is a material issue and could cost Xilinx $20
  • Here comes the sun
    a specially designed filter on top that lets in only the portion of the solar spectrum that matches the spectral response of the cell beneath. This photo from Sandia National Labs shows a successful photovoltaic facility power installation at Pinnacles National Monument in California. A 10-kW
  • Next Big Challenge for PV Makers: Wafer Handling
    photovoltaic (PV) manufacturing lines. The reason: "Solar is driven by yield and throughput right now. They are trying to drive down the cost per solar cell so the technology approaches the economics of conventional energy, " explains Dan Tracy, senior director of industry research and statistics
