DLIP enables increased efficiencies of organic solar cells or an increase in transmission on metallic thin film electrodes.

35% higher efficiency of organic solar cells through DLIP

DLIP enables the production of large-area, two-dimensional and periodic surface patterns on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) substrates, which is used as a standard material in organic photovoltaics. Due to the created structures, DLIP achieves a relative increase in efficiency of 35% (winner of the German High Tech Champion Prize 2011).

81% increase of transmission on metallic thin film electrodes by DLIP

New, highly efficient, transparent electrodes could be produced without the use of rare raw materials such as indium, because of a new generation of thin metallic layers with high transparency and electrical conductivity.

DLIP can be used to produce dot-like surface structures on thin metallic films. This leads to an 81% improvement in the optical transparency of the material while maintaining good electrical properties.

In the solar industry, DLIP offers a promising alternative to ITO cover electrodes, which is why DLIP won the Green Photonics Award 2015 (SPIE Photonics West in San Francisco, USA).
