HelioVolt Opens Solar Factory in Texas
Oct 2008
HelioVolt Corp. held a ribbon-cutting ceremony today in Austin, Texas, to mark the opening of its first factory for manufacturing high-performance thin-film solar energy products. The 122,400 sq-ft certified green facility is expected to create approximately 160 new jobs. City and state officials, federal representatives, and energy industry leaders attended the ceremony. The factory will produce high-quality copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin-film solar products based on the company's proprietary FASST reactive transfer printing process. HelioVolt said it is using FASST to develop both conventional modules and next-generation building integrated photovoltaic (BIPV) products for the global solar energy market.

The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
