Ascent Solar introduces game-changing dynamics in the solar market by delivering technology that is extremely lightweight, flexible and produces the highest efficiency levels currently available on plastic. Ascent Solar's technology results in better-performing products than currently available alternatives. Our proprietary, monolithically integrated processing techniques take CIGS to production on high-temperature plastic substrate that can survive the manufacturing temperatures associated with thin-film CIGS processing, while remaining flexible and electrically insulating. The insulating features of the plastics make it possible to connect individual cells into modules during processing. These advances in CIGS processing significantly reduce the weight, while increasing the flexibility and performance of PV products - making this latest technology well suited for high-volume applications.
