Get the Facts on DuPont Leadership in Solar Cell Efficiency

First to offer co-fire photovoltaics metallizations in early days of industry

  • Solamet® PV14x frontside chemistry enabled co-firing with Solamet® PV202 in 2001

First to offer shallow emitter contacting silver pastes

  • Solamet® PV15x frontside chemistry enabled >70 ohm emitters 
  • Solamet® PV16x frontside chemistry enabled >85 ohm emitters

First to offer silicon inks for selective emitters

First to bring photovoltaic metallizations that contacted LDEs

  • Solamet® PV17A enabled the industry to contact a Lightly Doped Emitter (LDE) on a large commercial scale

From Solamet® PV17x to PV18x today, Solamet® metallization pastes continue to set the standard for cell efficiency. We have a robust innovation roadmap to deliver >22% cell efficiency by 2015. Only DuPont™ Solamet® metallization pastes combine proprietary Tellurium technology with LDE, which has set today’s standard.
