News and Stories: How U.S. Startups Will Thrive in Solar. October 21, 2010.

Innovalight is dedicated to helping world class crystalline silicon cell manufacturers improve both the performance of their solar cells and their bottom line. Based in California’s Silicon Valley, Innovalight has developed a portfolio of patented technologies and materials that allow current cell manufacturing companies to cost effectively produce solar cells with higher conversion efficiencies.

Representing over ninety percent of the solar photovoltaic (PV) market, crystalline silicon solar is the dominant PV technology. Manufacturers of crystalline silicon solar cells have reached the limits in the conversion efficiency of solar cells using current designs. Innovalight’s commercially available Cougar™ Platform is a new low cost cell design enabled by Innovalight Silicon Ink that allows cell manufacturers to quickly break through the efficiency ceiling.

Focusing exclusively on solar since 2005, Innovalight has hired top engineers and chemists from many of the world's leading solar and materials companies with the sole objective of lowering the cost of solar energy. The high caliber team has filed over sixty patents and regularly presents at leading solar conferences. Innovalight is led by an experienced management team and a strong team of investors.

Innovalight was acquired by DuPont in 2011.
