QuantaSol General Information


Designer and manufacturer of solar cells. The company is an independent developer and producer of strain-balanced quantum-well solar cells. The company combines nanostructures ("quantum wells") of two or more different alloys, in order to obtain synthetic crystals. The crystalline structure can be tuned during manufacture to overcome the absorption problems associated with current concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) cell designs. The quantum well effect also enhances photovoltaic conversion efficiency.
