nTact awarded $700,000 to develop a slot-die coating process for perovskite solar cell production

The US National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded nTact with $708,000 project to develop a reliable, reproducible, and cost-effective upscaling of perovskite photovoltaic devices using an industry-proven slot-die coating technique. This process will ultimately be used to produce flexible and rigid, highly efficient perovskite solar cells.

This is the second stage of this Small Business Technology Transfer Project (STTR-II) that has three objectives:

  1. Produce a hybrid perovskite slot-die deposition solution for large solar panels sized 600-1200 mm and beyond
  2. Build slot-die coating solution for perovskite-silicon tandem photovoltaic cells
  3. Conduct modeling and reliability studies to optimize the system.

This new project starts on April 15, 2020 and will end at around March 31, 2022.
