Intermolecular Inc. and First Solar Inc. have entered into a two-year collaboration and licensing agreement focused on further increases to the conversion efficiency of First Solar's cadmium telluride (CdTe) solar cell technology.

Under the new program, First Solar and Intermolecular researchers will work together to develop new approaches to increasing the performance of CdTe solar cell technology using Intermolecular's proprietary High Productivity Combinatorial platform.

The program targets substantial gains in First Solar's module conversion efficiency beyond its previously announced roadmap, the companies note.

"The combinatorial approach to material and process screening has shown promise to augment First Solar's already world-leading research and development capabilities in CdTe solar technology, enabling better performance and faster time to market" says Raffi Garabedian, chief technology officer at First Solar.
