Ascent Solar (NASDAQ: ASTI) manufactures flexible thin-film solar solutions that bring electric power to use cases where mass, shape & survivability matter.
Ascent solar films are developed using proprietary CIGS manufacturing processes. Its thin film PV panels are manufactured using CIGS (Copper-Indium-Gallium-Selenide) with patented monolithic integration. The patent-protected processes enable the company to precisely apply layers of these elements on a thin (25micron) polyamide substrate to create resilient and featherweight panels that convert sunlight into electric power.
