Solution Processed Solar Cells

Conventional vacuum-based evaporation manufacturing of solar cells and organic photovoltaic (OPV) platforms is costly and time-consuming. Eliminating the bottleneck in photovoltaics production is key for meeting a growing demand and developing new OPVs with enhanced power conversion efficiencies. With faster production capacities and improved multilayer performance, solution-processed solar cells are key for unlocking a new generation of photovoltaics.

At Avantama, we have developed a range of almost 30 off-the-shelf nanoparticle formulations suitable for multilayer photovoltaic systems. Our materials can perform either hole or electron blocking functions, enabling photon conversion with exceptional quantum efficiencies. These can be deposited via a range of application techniques, including high throughput roll-to-roll processing.

With unmatched experience in nanoparticle material engineering, we also offer a formulation tailoring service to help you develop proprietary solutions for photovoltaics manufacturing. Avantama core nanoparticle materials include tungsten, molybdenum, zinc, nickel oxide, stannic oxide, and aluminum-doped zinc oxides (WOx, MoOx, ZnO, NiO, SnO2, and Al:ZnO), but we are happy to discuss other chemical arrangements for custom orders.
