Solar Cell Prototyping Platform

Our award-winning solar cell prototyping platform: A coherent collection of substrates, materials, and equipment as part of a high-performance standard photovoltaic reference architecture.

Recognised by the Institute of Physics with a 2017 Business Innovation Award for its exemplary application and impact in solar-cell research, this platform enables researchers to produce high quality, fully-functional solar cells that can be used as a reliable baseline.

At Ossila, we understand how time-consuming it is to gain expertise over all the materials, processes, and techniques required to produce a high-quality device – and how despite your best efforts, it can sometimes lead to inconsistency and non-reproducibility of results.

We developed this platform with the aim of enabling researchers to focus on their research, rather than trying to design/source all of their own components and replicate a baseline of performance. A significant benefit of this platform is the provision of pre-patterned ITO substrates and high-throughput processing equipment – making it possible for you to significantly increase your production rate for solar cell devices and collect more data in much less time. As such, more types of new materials or architecture variations can be tested and more statistical data can be collected - ensuring consistency and accuracy.
