Beacon Equity Research Featured Company: Solar3D, Inc. (SLTD)

Monday, May 21st, 2012

Solar3D is the developer of a pioneering three-dimensional solar cell technology that maximizes the conversion of sunlight into electricity.

Currently, up to 30% of incident sunlight is reflected off the surface of conventional solar cells, and still more is lost within the solar cell materials. Taking its inspiration from light management techniques utilized in fiber optic devices, Solar3D’s advanced solar cell technology uses a three-dimensional design that traps sunlight inside micro-photovoltaic structures where photons bounce around until they are converted into electrons. The key features of Solar3D’s technology are high efficiency and wide-angle light collection, designed into a single wafer silicon solar cell to create significantly more power output than any other silicon-based technology.

While the growth potential of the solar industry is seemingly unlimited, one major drawback is that buying and installing a solar system is more costly than conventional electricity. Solar3D’s next-generation solar cell will be significantly more efficient, helping tip the solar cost curve toward massive scalability and global deployment – resulting in a lower cost-per-watt and affordable solar power for the world.
