Bandgap Engineering, Inc.
Bandgap's nanowire-enhanced solar cell designs combine low-cost processing with crystalline silicon to yield high-efficiency products. Our highly tunable silicon nanowires make these designs possible, leading to solar power that is cost-competitive with the grid. We are also developing our silicon nanowires for high-capacity Li-ion battery anodes.
