Alta Devices produces the most efficient single-junction solar technology in the world and holds world records for both single-junction and dual-junction cell efficiency at 28.8% and 31.6% respectively. By utilizing gallium arsenide and a unique production process, Alta Devices is helping bring high efficiency solar technology to the masses.
Solar is no longer just for the sun with Alta Devices thin film gallium arsenide solar technology. Alta’s unique technology allows it to generate 3-5x the amount of power indoors and in low light compared to other technologies. Whether you are outdoors or at home, you can trust that Alta’s solar cells will continue to provide the world’s best performance.
At only 110 um thick, weighing less than 200 mg, and capable of bending around a 40 mm cylinder, Alta Devices produces the thinnest, lightest, and most flexible solar technology on the market. Combined with its world record efficiency, Alta is able to provide unbeatable power density.
Battery recharging on mobile devices and in other mobile applications is one of the biggest challenges today. This whitepaper introduces a thin-film solar technology from Alta Devices that not only extends battery life for mobile devices but because of its flexibility, can be integrated into UAVs, automobiles, Internet of Things devices, wearables or for many other mobile powered applications.
