Oxford PV Sees Strong Potential for Perovskite


With efficiencies climbing above 20 percent, perovskite technology is drawing much interest in the solar market.


By David Savastano, Editor

There are a number of interesting technologies being developed and commercialized for photovoltaics (PV). Crystalline silicon, cadmium telluride (CdTe), amorphous silicon (aSi), copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS), dye sensitized solar cells (DSSC) and organic photovoltaics (PV) have all drawn attention for the potential they have for producing energy. Each of these are at various stages of commercialization, with crystalline silicone and CdTe leading the way.

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.
