The LeSoleil cell is produced by depositing the CIGS film on a thin stainless steel sheet. The sheet is then cut into cell form, covered with the Ultrawire interconnect, and tested. The result is the most unique cell architecture in the industry.
Not only is it the highest efficiency thin film cell, it is lightweight, flexible, low cost, and the shape can be modified to fit any form factor.
These characteristics enable a number of product applications that standard silicon panels cannot offer.
