Carter Ledyard Client Solar-Tectic LLC Awarded a Patent for a New Thin-Film Photo-Voltaic Technology

Carter Ledyard client Solar-Tectic LLC has been issued a patent for technology which facilitates growth of single crystal semiconductor films on inexpensive substrates, such as glass. The technology was invented by the late Dr. Praveen Chaudhari, winner of the 1995 US Medal of Technology and Innovation, and has applications in various industries in addition to solar, such as displays and LEDs. The inexpensive, low temperature deposition process, involving eutectic alloys, is extremely well suited for large-scale industrial applications and can be carried out using either the common electron-beam (e-beam) method or a laser. Carter Ledyard associate Libby Varghese helped draft the patent claims.
