Grossman Group came up with an annealing process that can be applied in large scale. The process results in 38% more photon absorption and four orders of magnitude reduction in resistance.
This paper explains, in great detail, the reasons behind the 23% cost advantage Chinese PV factories had over American PV factories in the first half of 2012. Moreover, a near-future prediction is made based on current trends.
Grossman Group created a computer simulation of a “one molecule thick” layer of Graphene with a “one molecule thick” layer of Molybdenum Disulfide.
