We have extensive experience scaling and improving solid-state lighting and solar production and performance. We have worked with all major thin-film technologies, including CdTe, CIGS, GaAs, and a-Si:H. Our experience ranges from raw materials, through fabrication to testing and packaging for several clients including First Solar, Alta Devices, and Optisolar. Other programs have included influence of defects on semiconductor performance, materials development, product definition, and manufacturing ramping.

We have carried out many different types of programs including research, product development, organization building, and  manufacturing ramps. We also offer training in all solar cell manufacturing technologies.

Energy Storage

We have successfully applied our proven expertise from photovoltaics to solid-state energy storage. Our expertise produced key scaling strategies and solved numerous critical materials challenges. The results were rapid demonstration of  technical feasibility and risk, as well as resolution of strategic questions with regards to commercialization options.
