Companies Collaborate With ETH Zurich To Further Develop Solar Cells


Sunovia Energy Technologies Inc. and EPIR Technologies Inc. (EPIR) are collaborating with the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Zurich (ETH Zurich) for the further development of cadmium telluride (CdTe) solar cells.

The collaboration with ETH Zurich provides the companies with important experience and knowledge within the field of solar cell development and manufacturing, and should expedite product development efforts. Specifically, the effort will involve the development of CdTe thin-film solar cells including the use of plastic substrates.

Sunovia and EPIR say the collaboration is strengthened by additional research and development in the field of infrared detection, wherein ETH Zurich will grow and characterize II-VI semiconductor lead-tin-selenide layers on silicon substrates for the companies.
