The thin film photovoltaic, solar thermal and concentrated solar power systems offer great alternatives for the energy requirements of the future. To improve the efficiency of solar systems, it is essential that high-grade materials are sourced. Stanford Advanced Materials offers various high purity sputtering targets.

Thin film photovoltaics

CCDs (charge-coupled display devices), CRTs (cathode ray tubes), Flat Panels, Electroluminesent, Photoluminescent, Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD), Plasma Displays, Thin Film Transistor (TFT)

Solar thermal

CIG(S), Silicon or Cadmium Telluride CdTe based technology.
Typical Materials:
Cadmium Telluride CdTe, Cadmium Selenide CdSe, Cadmium Sulphide CdS, Indium-Tin Oxide In2O3-SnO2, Silicon dioxide SiO2, Zirconium boride ZrB2, various metals and their alloys
