Cambrios Awarded DoD Contract for PV Cells

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
SUNNYVALE, Calif., April 13, 2010 — Cambrios Technologies Corp. announced that it has been awarded a Department of Defense contract to produce lightweight, flexible solar energy photovoltaics (PV).

The contract represents the company’s first public announcement regarding the feasibility of using ClearOhm, a transparent, conductive, liquid material used to manufacture various electronics, as the electrode of a PV cell.

Under the contract with the DoD, US Army Natick Soldier Research, Development and Engineering Center (NSRDEC) and its collaboration with Ascent Solar Technologies Inc., a thin film solar module developer, the company will deliver flexible solar cells that incorporate a ClearOhm electrode layer.

It is expected that the cells will be 1 to 3 percent more efficient than the equivalent cells made with conventional transparent electrode material because of its improved transparency and light handling capability, said the company.

That branch of science involved in the study and utilization of the motion, emissions and behaviors of currents of electrical energy flowing through gases, vacuums, semiconductors and conductors, not to be confused with electrics, which deals primarily with the conduction of large currents of electricity through metals.
Capable of transmitting light with little absorption and no appreciable scattering or diffusion.
