Technology Description

Our team aims to improve design and reliability of photovoltaic products resulting in increased service lifetime, decreased failure rates, and consequently lower financing rates for solar installations. The technology measures water content in polymeric encapsulant materials used in photovoltaic modules at concentrations lower than 0.1% by weight. This enables direct measurements on field-deployed modules for comparison with accelerated-tested products.
