Sharp 90W Amorphous/Microcrystalline Thin-Film


These new thin-film solar (photovoltaic) modules with outstanding temperature characteristics are intended for commercial/industrial/grid applications.


The NA-901WP and NA-902WP are high-output models, delivering 90W of power. The adoption of an Amorphous/Microcrystalline Thin-Film Tandem Cell design, which uses stacked layers of amorphous silicon and microcrystalline silicon achieves a conversion efficiency of 8.5% (40% higher than conventional amorphous solar cells), among the industry’s highest levels for thin-film silicon-based solar cells currently in volume production.




The most outstanding feature of these new cells is the way they are produced. The silicon raw materials form a layer only about 2 µm onto a glass substrate, which is roughly 1/100th as thick as conventional polycrystalline solar cells. This uses significantly less silicon, and the process is applicable to manufacturing cells with large surface areas.


Sharp's thin-film solar (photovoltaic) modules are covered with tempered glass for increased strength and minimum reflected surface glare. The external surface appearance is an attractive black, a feature typical of thin-film solar cells. These panels can be integrated into building material and will enable development of applications with outstanding designs.
