Laser sealed DSCs: a Cutting Edge Technology

Thin-film OPV firm, Dyesol, is collaborating with Portuguese electrical engineering firm, EFACEC on a novel laser assisted, glass frit sealing technology for its solid-state DSC solar cells to provide 20-year plus sealing for its planned perovskite-based commercial PV products. 
The low temperature, laser-assisted glass sealing technology was first developed by EFACEC and FEUP, which will be further developed to specifically meet Dyesol’s requirements.

Mendes reinforces the importance of such partnerships and international negotiations: "when we sell cutting edge technology for international companies we are demonstrating our ability to R&D&I to produce industrial value and we can more easily capture new investments".
