First Solar Inc. and Intermolecular Inc. have signed a collaboration and licensing agreement aimed at accelerating the efficiency roadmap for First Solar's cadmium telluride (CdTe) photovoltaic technology.

First Solar plans to leverage Intermolecular's High Productivity Combinatorial (HPC) platform in the development of its CdTe PV manufacturing technology. The program addresses new opportunities in certain critical materials and processes that may significantly influence the conversion efficiency of CdTe technology, according to the companies.

Technical work is to be performed jointly at Intermolecular's San Jose, Calif., facility and in First Solar's research and development labs.
