Quantum Dot Solar Cells (QDSC)

Solterra Renewable Technologies solar energy solution will compete on a non-subsidized basis with the price of retail electricity in key markets worldwide. Revolutionary 3rd-generation quantum dot solar cells (QDSC) utilizing high-volume synthesis  of quantum dots formulated as the broad-spectrum photon absorber in solar cells and using high-speed roll-to-roll printing technologies can effectively convert solar energy to electricity at less than half the price of competition.

Automated Quantum Dot Production

In 2014, Quantum Materials Corp, parent company to Solterra Renewable Technologies, introduced a microreactor automated process for mass production of quantum dots, solving the problem of reliable availability of quantum dots for solar cells. A proprietary microreactor uses ordinary non-toxic, biodegradable detergent surfactants as the main chemical used in a safe, green, environmentally friendly manufacturing process that can currently produce over 2000Kg per year. Quantum Materials’ process uses tight production control parameters for repeatable, precise control of shape and size. Additional production units will be added as the market demands.
