OPV Manufacturers Face Challenges


The OPV industry is making gains, but some significant hurdles remain.


By David Savastano, Editor

The market for organic photovoltaics (OPV) has shown some growth in recent years, with particular interest being paid to the potential for building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) and off-grid power charging systems. However, there are hurdles to be overcome; the greatest challenges facing OPV developers remain lifetime and efficiency. Overcoming these issues will be the key to the ultimate widespread commercialization of OPVs.

Printing on Non-porous Substrates with Thermal Ink Jet
This paper addresses the challenges of using aggressive inks in thermal ink jet (TIJ) print cartridges to enable printing on non-porous substrates. Non-aqueous inks are required to achieve the performance characteristics desired including print speeds, image quality and image durability on non-porous substrates. Thermal ink jet technology has traditionally been considered only for aqueous inks. Some of the challenges of using non-aqueous inks in thermal ink jet print cartridges are being solved and thus the benefits of thermal ink jet are now available for non-porous printing applications. As the TIJ technology can be extended for jetting not only inks, but also other fluids, the terms ink and fluid are used interchangeably in this paper.
