Roth & Rau AG and Innovalight have completed the installation of the world's first silicon-ink based solar cell production line. The pilot line, built and installed at Innovalight, in Sunnyvale, Calif., has been qualified to operational capability.
According to the companies, this line combines the qualities and cost benefits of crystal silicon wafer technology with elegant silicon-ink processing technology to produce low cost, high-performance solar cells. The manufacturing platform is capable of producing 10 MW of solar power and can be scaled to hundreds of megawatts of electricity production.
