Introducing Broadband Solar
Broadband Solar Inc. (BSX) is a California based US corporation formed in 2008 to develop energy efficiency enhancement technology. We design and engineer metallic nanostructures to significantly improve performance of solar, glass and display devices. BSX seek to become the first company in the world to offer a true manufacture scale process that can be tailored for a range of applications.
Plasmonics, an exploding field of nanoscience, allows BSX to use metallic nanostructures to capture and utilize light over the entire broadband spectrum to optimize optical and electrical functions in various devices.
Transparent conductive oxide films (TCO) provide or manage critical optical/electrical functions for essential products in may major market sectors including display, low-e glass and solar. Our technology incorporates plasmonics in TCO to create TCO+. TCO+ can add new or improved features to products for significant performance improvements and cost reductions. TCO+ can replace conventional TCO layers in thin film solar cells (a-Si, C-Si, CIGS, CdTe) and many other devices.
Plasmonic scattering has already been proven in the lab and in commercial facilities on a range of devices and has the potential to increase device performance by providing a means of passive control of the incident wavelength spectrum
