Trends in PV metallization

Trends in PV metallization

Jun 30, 2015
The photovoltaic industry remains a major end user of printed electronics. In this article, we will provide a detailed cost breakdown of the wafer-based silicon photovoltaic cells, showing that Ag and Al metallization continue to constitute a major cost element of the overall PV cell even though the manufacturers make to zero margin. We will then investigate some of the trends in Ag metallization before commenting on silicon inks, which at one…

Flexible barrier technologies: a brief review of technology options

Flexible barrier technologies: a brief review of technology options

Jun 24, 2015 Worldwide
Back in 2014, we witnessed the launch of the first displays deposited on flexible substrates, and the first efforts to encapsulate them. There are significant differences in the encapsulation techniques utilized by each of the companies commercializing flexible electronics. These differences signify the variety of technologies available, in terms of deposition as well as material options for the barrier films, some of which are discussed in this article
