NanoFlex's Solar Technology
A New Approach to Photovoltaics
The Next Generation of Photovoltaics

What are Photovoltaics?

Before we jump into explaining our new technology, we should probably provide some background information. Photovoltaic refers to the process of taking light and converting it into energy. The process occurs when photons of light excite electrons into a higher state of energy which allows them to act as charge carriers for an electric current. This is made possible through the use of two different categories of photovoltaic materials: inorganic and organic. All solar photovoltaic systems fielded to date use inorganic materials, with crystalline silicon being the most common, by a wide margin. Other inorganic technologies include Cadmium Telluride and Gallium Arsenide, among others. Organic photovoltaics are in the development stage. Organic refers to any solar cell material that contains carbon. The use of organic materials in solar photovoltaics presents opportunities for revolutionizing the form factor and cost structure of solar power.


The Next Generation of Photovoltaics

Our approach to photovoltaics is completely breaking the mold of previous solar cell technologies. By redefining the materials, architectures, and fabrication processes of solar cells, we aim to drastically reduce the cost and improve the efficiency of both inorganic and organic photovoltaics. Our inorganic technology provides a process to make the most efficient solar materials (Gallium Arsenide) flexible and cost-effective for broader applications, while our organic photovoltaic technology focuses on developing the next generation of solar, unencumbered by today's limitations and burdensome cost structure.

GaAs Cell Fabrication

Revolutionizing Gallium Arsenide Solar

Making the Highest Efficiency Solar Cells Cost-Competitive

Known to be the highest performance solar technology available, Gallium Arsenide, or GaAs, is also extremely expensive. Its high fabrication costs have prohibited its use except for in certain specialty applications such as space and military. With our patented architecture and fabrication process for GaAs technologies, NanoFlex can enable its manufacturing partners to produce these ultra-high efficiency solar cells at a fraction of the previous cost.
