(Targeted News Service Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) By Targeted News Service
ALEXANDRIA, Va., Jan. 5 -- Sunlight Photonics, South Plainfield, N.J., has been assigned a patent (8,343,794) developed by Sergey Frolov, Murray Hill, N.J., and Michael Cyrus, Summit, N.J., for a "method and apparatus for manufacturing multi-layered electro-optic devices."
The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "A method is provided for producing a hybrid multi junction photovoltaic device. The method begins by providing a plurality of planar photovoltaic semi-transparent modules. Each of the modules is a fully functional, thin-film, photovoltaic device and includes first and second conductive layers and at least first and second semiconductor layers disposed between the conductive layers. The first and second semiconductor layers define a junction at an interface therebetween. The method continues by disposing the modules one on top of another and hybridly adhering them to each other. At least one of the modules is configured to convert a first spectral portion of optical energy into an electrical voltage and transmit a second spectral portion of optical energy to another of the junctions that is configured to convert at least part of the second spectral portion of optical energy into an electrical voltage."
The patent application was filed on May 11, 2010 (12/777,392). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO2&Sect2=HITOFF&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsearch-bool.html&r=1&f=G&l=50&co1=AND&d=PTXT&s1=8,343,794&OS=8,343,794&RS=8,343,794
