1c-Si Laser Eutectic

Solar-Tectic LLC presents 1c-Si Laser Eutectic: a non-epitaxial method of manufacturing large grained to single crystal semiconductor films on ordinary glass (soda lime).  The method involves depositing semiconductor films, such as silicon, from a eutectic alloy solution, which is then laser scanned.  The eutectic alloy enables deposition at a temperature low enough for deposition on glass, or other inexpensive substrate.  The laser scan insures an efficient and cost effective method of manufacture at a large scale.

A patent for this technology was awarded on November 7, 2014 by the US Patent and Trademark Office – US 8,916,455
