Solar3D shapes operational plan for 3-D solar cell development

Solar3D Inc., the developer of a breakthrough 3-dimensional solar celltechnology to maximize the conversion of sunlight into electricity, hasannounced details of its plan for the development of the company’s solar cell.

“Our research, analysis, and experimentation to date haveallowed us to outline our development process and timetable with a highdegree of confidence,” said Jim Nelson, CEO of Solar3D. “We are ahead of the original schedule that we set for ourselves in terms of timing andexpected output.”

Inspired by light management techniques used in fiber optic devices, the company’s innovative solar cell technologyutilizes a 3-dimensional design to trap sunlight insidemicro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. The company’s management believes that thisbreakthrough solar cell will dramatically change the economics of solarenergy.
