Sol Voltaics Lands $12.5M for GaAs Nanowire Solar Materials

By [email protected] Swedish solar materials startup Sol Voltaics just announced a $12.5 million Series C investment for its gallium arsenide (GaAs) nanowire technology.

The company is attempting to commercialize a radically different solar technology — its GaAs nanowires are tiny solar cells about 1 or 2 microns long and approximately 100 nanometers in diameter. They’re sold as an ink-like solution that is applied to create an absorber layer on top of existing solar cells that “capture light very effectively on top of panels using a phenomenon called wave-concentrated photovoltaics (WCPV),” according to the company.
