Coatings play a significant role in solar photovoltaics and in solar thermal applications. Conductive layers deposited on glass are used as front (thin film silicon and CdTe) or back (CIGS) electrodes.
Anti-reflective coatings for their part are used in order to further increase light transmission into the solar modules.
In both cases, AGC Solar builds on its experience in all coating technologies (CVD, PVD, sol-gel etc.) to provide solutions adapted to each segment.
