Sanyo amorphous silicon solar cells, “Amorton”, available from Tenrod Australia can be deposited onto a vast array of insulation materials including glass and ceramics, metals such as stainless steel, and plastics.
Alhough inferior to crystal system solar cells at conversion efficiency, Amorton solar cells offer various advantages such as:
- Amorton can be made into modules which, when connected in a sufficient number in series on a substrate during cell formation, can generate even extremely high voltage output levels.
- Amorton Films are exceptionally thin, light and flexible amorphous silicon solar cells fabricated on plastic film.
- Amorton Films are also resistant to cracks.
