Nippon Kayaku To Incorporate Unidym Tech Into Thin-Film Cells


Unidym Inc. has entered into a joint development agreement with Nippon Kayaku to integrate Unidym's printable transparent electrodes into Nippon Kayaku's thin-film solar cells.

Thin-film solar cells require a transparent electrode material for optimal efficiency, and Unidym's carbon nanotube-based electrodes could offer substantial benefits over the materials currently in use, such as indium tin oxide (ITO), the companies say.

‘Unidym's products provide several advantages over ITO for solar cell manufacturers, including compatibility with high-volume, roll-to-roll manufacturing techniques, lower materials cost and enhanced flexibility,’ says Art Swift, Unidym's CEO and president.
