Advanced ultrasonic spray deposition system for large area solar cells fabrication

Grant number: LE100100147 | Funding period: 2010 - 2011



Low cost, low carbon forms of power generation are required to enable Australia to minimise its greenhouse gas emissions. Traditional solar cells are manufactured using high cost, low volume production methods which will in future be complemented by the introduction of low cost, high volume printed organic solar cells. Spray deposition of active materials will allow the formation of active solar cells on many new materials, thus opening up new ways of using solar cells and hence new markets or export opportunities. The research is aimed at delivering a local research-driven industry which is export-oriented, thus assisting Australia to reach its carbon reduction targets.
