Track CodeU.S. Patent No. 7,601,430 (DOE S-104,959)
Short Description

Los Alamos National Laboratory - Express Licensing Program

LANL’s Aligned-Crystalline Silicon (ACSi) technology provides highly crystalline silicon films on inexpensive substrates, such as metal sheets and glass plates.  ACSi films exhibit good electrical and optical properties and have the potential to make an impact on the solar cell industry.

The current ACSi prototype, designed under subpar tooling conditions in a non-optimal environment, already demonstrates 2% conversion efficiency.
