Sliver cells - a complete photovoltaic solution

Blakers, Andrew; Weber, Klaus; Everett, Vernie; Franklin, Evan; Deenapanray, Prakash


Sliver technology was invented and developed at the Australian National University [1-3], with support from the Australian company Origin Energy. The Sliver process uses standard materials and techniques in novel ways to create thin single crystalline solar cells with superior performance and reduced cost. Sliver cells are made from very thin single crystalline silicon, and are highly efficient. Sliver technology offers reductions in silicon consumption by a factor of 10-15 and reductions in...[Show more]
