Bloo Solar’s Solar Brush wafer development production has begun and with the hopes to bring the commercial modules to market in 2012, the company has chosen CVD Equipment Corp. to develop and manufacture the equipment for the solar module.

“CVD Equipment Corp. is focusing on enabling the commercialization of tomorrow’s technologies,” says Karlheinz Strobl, VP of business development of CVD. “Through the combination of our Application Laboratory with our experience in designing and manufacturing a wide variety of CVD related research and manufacturing equipment, we believe that we can optimally help Bloo Solar reach its commercialization needs. In particular our focus on a variety of TCO coating processes and production scale-up equipment is being fully utilized in this relationship.”

Bloo’s Solar Brush is a third-generation, three-dimensional, single-junction architecture technology. The module is said to provide more surface area, better light trapping and less recombination, which produces higher efficiency and a total power output of 1.5 to 3 times higher than current technologies, the company says.

Together, Bloo Solar and CVD will develop a key process for transparent conductive oxide (TCO) coating. CVD Equipment supplies offline and online CVDgCoat(TM) APCVD for fluorine-doped SnO2 (SnO2:F) coating and offline LPCVD for ZnO coating.
