Novel series interconnection for thin film PV

We are developing a new thin-film photovoltaic cell division and interconnection scheme using a combination of laser scribing and ink-jet deposition of insulating barriers and conducting paths which is expected to very significantly simplify and reduce costs of thin film PV manufacturing, helping the industry to move towards cost equivalence with electricity generated from fossil fuels.

The programme operates at many levels - from the microscopic: thin film material deposition, patterning to the macroscopic: development of an industrial machine to run the process at high speed on 1m2 PV modules and the analytical: structural and performance analysis of PV devices.
