Funding Enables Bloo to Apply Materials to Advanced Solar Cell Architecture Reliably

Bloo Solar announced today that is has been awarded a $100,000 grant from the National Science Foundation.

“The NSF grant will enable Bloo to demonstrate a new technique that enables the creation of ultra smooth and ultra rough surfaces on tiny wires, one tenth the diameter of a red blood cell,” said Dr. Ruxandra Vidu, Bloo’s director of R&D. “Controlling how rough or smooth we want the surface of our materials with atomic-scale precision enables Bloo to apply materials to its advanced solar cell architecture reliably and precisely, while producing greater strength, straightness and stability.”

“This grant enables Bloo Solar to deepen its work on the nanostructures contained in Bloo’s Solar Brush (TM) ultra thin film product,” said Larry Bawden, President and CEO of Bloo Solar. “We are excited about the continued support the NSF grant provides for the commercialization of Bloo’s products. This funding will further advance Bloo Solar's Solar Brush technology, which creates billions of integrated nanostructured solar cells per square centimeter to capture light more effectively.”
