U.S. Ingenuity Meets Asian Manufacturing: Solar Frontier Teams with IBM
Earlier this year, IBM unveiled a copper tin zinc selenium sulfur (CTZSS) solar cell with a 9.6 percent efficiency. CTZSS devices have existed in labs for years, but have generally hadlow efficiencies, which have hampered the product’s commercialprospects. IBM’s technique involves spraying copper, tin and zinc onto a film containing selenide and sulfur in a process that’s akin to inkjetprinting.
