The world is changing and at Applied Materials we are taking action to change it for a better, Bright Future. Our Energy and Environmental Solutions group is focused on technology and products that help reduce the need to burn fossil fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
Our technology and know-how can be applied to several key areas to make a difference - to improve the way people live in ways that will be beneficial for each of us as well as future generations.
By applying our four decades of thin film on silicon experience to the manufacturing of solar modules, the total volume of solar panels manufactured each year can be vastly increased. At the same time, Applied Materials' products are aimed at reducing the cost per watt of energy produced, to become more competitive with current electricity generation.
Glass allows light into our homes and offices while also allowing us to see the world around us. However, plain glass is not the best solution because in the summer it lets heat in, and in the winter it lets heat out. Low emission coated glass can have a major impact in reducing solar heat gain, or winter heat loss, with a corresponding benefit in lowering fuel consumption and green house gas emissions.
Applied Materials, working with partners in the European OPAL program, are exploring the use of Organic Light Emitting Diode (OLED) structures. The future of OLED is being evaluated as well as other lighting technologies that can produce the light needed while using far less energy each day.
Applied's expertise is the application of very precise, thin films to substrates at high manufacturing volumes, low defect levels, low manufacturing cost with high yields. Applied Materials' Adjacent programs are exploratory in nature, seeking opportunities to utilize our four decades in thin film applications in new ways.
