Sunovia Energy Technologies and EPIR Technologies are developing a
solar PV encapsulate that eliminates the need for glass encapsulates
and employs II-VI materials. An initial contract has also been signed
with United States Air Force to assist in the development and
commercialization of the technology, the companies said.
The companies have also announced an exclusive marketing, supply and development partnership.
Technologies is known for its HgCdTe infrared detectors including
single and multi-layered epitaxial structures grown on Silicon and
Cadmium Zinc Telluride wafers.
