Cambrios Technologies Corp. of Sunnyvale, Calif., an electronic materials company, has announced that it has received a military contract to produce lightweight, flexible, cost-effective solar energy photovoltaics. Under a contract with the Department of Defense and in collaboration with Ascent Solar Technologies Inc., Cambrios will deliver flexible solar cells that incorporate its ClearOhm electrode layer. Featuring transparency and light handling capability, the cells are expected to be 1 to 3 percent more efficient than equivalent cells made with conventional transparent electrode material.
