Assembly and Production of Nanomaterials for Solar Energy

Conversion of sunlight directly into electricity using photovoltaic (PV) devices is a very attractive source of renewable energy. However, current (PV) technology has challenges with efficient capture and conversion of solar energy and the high price of solar modules. The cost per watt for PV solar cells must be competitive with conventional energy sources if PV is to become widely utilized.

Brochures

  • Nanomaterials for Solar Energy
    Hierarchically ordered (3rd Generation) solar cell technology is based on integrated micro and nanostructured materials that provide improved solar energy capture and transport.
  • Micro-porous Zeolite Membrane made into Metal Foil-like Thin Sheet
    Our innovations of material processing technologies enable deposition of tailored zeolite crystal lattice structures and surface chemistry according to specific application requirements. The simple planar membrane sheet structure may be manufactured at low costs in industrial scales.
