Once optimized for industry, this advancement is expected to reduce process time, improve device performance, and reduce costs of SolarWindow™ electricity-generating plastic products.
The development of the innovative SolarWindow flexible plastic laser beam patterning technology was performed in collaboration with the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Office of Energy Efficiency and Renewable Energy (EERE) and Advanced Manufacturing Office (AMO), partnered with DOE’s National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), through the company’s first-ever awarded advanced materials manufacturing collaborative research and development agreement (CRADA) that was awarded in March 2018.
This laser patterning advancement enables a single laser beam to be split into multiple focused beams that are simultaneously applied to flexible plastic during roll-to-roll manufacturing, a high-throughput and low-cost production method.
