Magnolia receives US patent for roll-to-roll flexible CIGS solar cell production

Magnolia Solar Corp of Woburn, MA and Albany, NY, USA says that on 21 October the United States Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) issued its subsidiary Magnolia Solar Inc a patent (US Patent No. 8,865,506) describing a roll-to-roll process for fabricating flexible solar cells employing copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) absorber materials.

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.

“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 8,865,506 patent pertains to a novel manufacturing method utilizing roll-to-roll solution processes,” he adds. “This technology has the potential to significantly reduce the manufacturing costs associated with the production of flexible photovoltaic modules.”
