Researchers Develop Faster, Cheaper Way to Make Solar Cells

Crystal Solar's approach to growing high-quality, high-efficiency silicon wafers at 100 times the usual throughput and half the cost could be a game-changer, creating American jobs and stemming the flow of solar cell manufacturing overseas, says T.S. Ravi, chief executive officer of the Santa Clara, California-based company. The monocrystalline silicon solar cells made by Crystal Solar are much closer to true squares than most other silicon solar cells. The shape is one of the reasons the wafers can be stacked vertically during the gas-deposition process — and one of the reasons that the cells can be produced at about 100 times the typical rate. Credit: Crystal Solar Even before he founded Crystal Solar, Ravi set a goal to speed up the manufacturing process. In 2011, his nascent company applied for the Energy Department's SunShot Initiative's Photovoltaic (PV) Incubator Pr...
