Latest: Cells efficiency of 18% NINES PV ADE DRY TEXTURING PROCESS DEMONSTRATES 18% MC-SI SOLAR CELL AND ENABLES DIAMOND WIRE CUT MC-SI WAFER SOLAR CELLS Nines Photovoltaics announced today that in collaboration with the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE they have demonstrated solar cell efficiencies of 18% by applying their Atmospheric Dry Etching (ADE) texturing process in a standard industrial ALBSF multi-crystalline solar cell manufacturing process. The ADE technology provides an efficient texturing process that lowers the front side reflectivity of the cell, allowing more light in and therefore generating more current ...
