  • XsunX, Inc. (XSNX.OB) Achieves High Efficiency in CIGS-based Solar Cell Fabrication Technology 0 comments
    Oct 19, 2010 1:45 PM | about stocks: XSNX

    XsunX Inc. develops advanced, thin-film photovoltaic (TFPV) solar cell technologies and manufacturing processes, and focuses on utilizing its Copper Indium Gallium diSelenide (CIGS) solar thin films to deliver low-cost, high-yield solar cell manufacturing methods.

    The company today announced the fabrication of cells based on its CIGSolar™ technology, resulting in a conversion rate of more than 14 percent. This supports the company’s assertion that small-area, co-evaporation production provides superior CIGS-based solar cells necessary to compete with and potentially replace silicon photovoltaic (PV) technologies.

    “In only a few short months since adding our new co-evaporation capability and control approach to our CIGS process development, we’ve achieved efficiencies of over 14 percent,” XsunX Chief Technology Officer Robert G. Wendt state in the press release.

    Wendt also noted the importance of attaining such a level of efficiency and said the company will continue to advance in the market through product innovation.

    “This efficiency level and the efficiency distribution is a significant achievement … We are working hard to further improve on this rapid success so that we can deliver the best possible CIGS technology to the market,” Wendt stated.

    XsunX said the test configurations used to determine efficiency of the technology are identical to that used by the National Renewable Energy Laboratory and that XsunX tesing equipment is calibrated to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) standards.
