HONEYWELL: Electronic PV Materials

Honeywell has introduced a new line of electronic materials designed to enable manufacturers of crystalline silicon photovoltaic (PV) cells to boost their power output through use of advanced, high-efficiency cell designs. The new materials include dielectrics and dopants, which are commonly used in high-volume semiconductor manufacturing.

“Honeywell continues to innovate to apply proven semiconductor technology and materials to the photovoltaic industry,” said Dmitry Shashkov, business director, Honeywell Electronic Materials. “Honeywell’s new dopant and dielectric materials help manufacturers of crystalline silicon photovoltaic cells apply low-cost, high-throughput industrial manufacturing processes to new solar cell designs proven in R&D labs.”

Solar cell efficiency is key for PV manufacturers. Increased efficiency means higher power output from the same-sized panel exposed to the same amount of light. Thus, it is a crucial driver of solar energy cost. Specifically, these new dopant and dielectric materials enable new technologies to be used for solar cell manufacturing, resulting in lower costs for producing each watt of electricity compared to current processes.
