Prism Solar Technologies is about to start manufacturing a new, advanced photovoltaic module called a Holographic Planar Concentrator (HPC). The HPC module incorporates a proprietary holographic optical film to substantially lower costs and increase power performance.
Prism’s solar concentration is achieved using a hologram imaged onto a transparent medium that is sealed between two pieces of glass.
- The hologram is a patent protected, unique technology. Materials used are proven, time tested, and have multiple vendors, minimizing business risk.
- The fundamental science and engineering behind Prism’s baseline design are credible and well-understood.
- The concept of using holographic concentration for solar applications has been discussed in the technical literature since 1981.
- Prism’s approach is both unique and workable, and the hologram design is well-suited for a variety of PV applications.
