Abstract
ABSTRACT: NanoSonic, Inc. researchers have developed an innovative material technology called HybridSil which can be tailored to minimize the vulnerability of flexible electronic devices to environmental threats commonly encountered during military use. NanoSonic will apply our HYBRIDSIL Solar materials to flexible solar cells to demonstrate environmental protection, ease of application and minimal impact on the packaged weight of the target system BENEFIT: HybridSil flexible, environmentally protective coating technology will allow optimized performance of flexible photovoltaic solar cells used for any solar energy technology application. Flexible solar cells and conformal antennas could potentially be integrated into personal electrics, clothing, windows and curved structures.
