Solar Frontier Inc. has signed an agreement to jointly develop thin-film solar cell technology with IBM based on the elements copper, zinc, tin, sulfur, and selenium (CZTS).

IBM and Solar Frontier will collaborate to expand upon IBM’s technology in this area. In February of 2010, IBM announced record results of 9.6 percent efficient solar cells using CZTS material.

The research for this joint development program will mainly take place at IBM’s Thomas J. Watson Research Center in Yorktown Heights, N.Y. Like Solar Frontier, DelSolar Co. Ltd has also recently partnered with IBM in developing this technology.
