SUNY Poly company Magnolia Solar awarded new patents

Times Union | April 3, 2015 | Post by Larry Rulison

Magnolia Solar, which does its research at SUNY Polytechnic Institute in Albany, was awarded three new patents recently.

The company is developing thin, flexible solar cells for portable power technologies.

One of the three patents is for a solar cell that uses a flexible stainless steel flexible substrate. Another uses quantum dots.

“We have been aggressively pursuing more than a dozen US patent applications as a means to protect our intellectual property (IP) in the field of flexible photovoltaics,” said Ashok Sood, the company’s CEO. “These patents pertain to novel device structures for increasing the efficiency of lightweight, high-performance and lost-cost thin-film solar cells. These novel structures employ nanostructured absorbers and leverage optical light trapping mechanisms to increase the current output of thin-film solar cells.”
