Plextronics Inc. has introduced two versions of ink systems – Plexcore PV – for organic solar cell fabrication. The company says it is already scheduled to fulfill multiple orders for the technology by the end of this month.
‘We began our solar cell development program about two years ago, and we are proud to introduce these initial ink systems as early results of our efforts,’ says Troy Hammond, Plextronics' vice president of products. ‘These initial products will allow us to work closely with researchers and commercial partners around the world to push development of organic photovoltaics even further.’
Plexcore PV is a ready-to-use ink system that consists of two inks custom-designed to work together: a p/n photoactive ink and a hole transport ink that are both solution-processable. Next generations of the system will be designed for printing in pilot and early manufacturing lines, the company says.
