Magnolia receives US patent on high-efficiency flexible multi-junction solar cells

Magnolia Solar Corp of Woburn, MA and Albany, NY, USA says that on 25 November the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued its subsidiary Magnolia Solar Inc a patent (US Patent No. 8,895,838) describing an improved multi-junction solar cell structure employing high-performance III-V absorber materials and nanostructured anti-reflection coatings that can improve solar cell performance.

Magnolia is working on the development of flexible, lightweight, high-efficiency solar cell technologies for a wide range of portable power applications. The firm’s technology portfolio includes nanostructured anti-reflection coatings, advanced photovoltaic absorber structures, and novel, low-cost manufacturing processes. In addition, Magnolia has filed a patent application for what it describes as an innovative design of portable power application. These patents are at various stages of evaluation by the USPTO.

“We have been aggressively pursuing more than a dozen US patent applications as a means to protect our intellectual property (IP) in the field of flexible photovoltaics,” says president & CEO Dr Ashok K. Sood. “The 8,895,838 patent pertains to a novel device structure for increasing the efficiency of high-performance multi-junction solar cells,” he adds. “When combined with advanced epitaxial liftoff fabrication processes, this technology can be employed in the construction of ultra-high performance flexible solar photovoltaic modules.”
