Phoenix Nuclear Labs Supports Rayton's U.S. Solar Initiative
Existing solar cell manufacturing utilizes diamond wire saws to cut thin layers of silicon, a process that is not only inefficient but results in high kerf loss. American solar companies Rayton Solar and Phoenix Nuclear Laboratory are teaming up to utilize high current ion beams produced by Phoenix to revolutionize solar panel manufacturing, cleaving thin layers of the most efficient semiconductor material with zero waste. Our process of producing photovoltaic cells uses 50-100 times less material than the traditional methods.
