Semprius 3 Semprius

Semprius, Inc., is a leading innovator in developing low-cost, high-performance concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) modules to make solar power generation economically viable in sunny, dry climates. Semprius builds its modules using novel processes that combine extremely tiny solar cells with low-cost, efficient optics that concentrate the incoming sunlight more than 1,000 times.  The company’s unique micro-transfer printing technology enables CPV modules with high performance, high reliability, and low cost with scalability to high-volume production.

Semprius is also licensing its micro-transfer printing technology for non-solar applications to enable a wide variety of new products requiring large-area, thin, lightweight form factors.  Applications of this technology include flat-panel displays, flexible electronics, large-area sensors, RF devices, and other applications requiring heterogeneous integration of high-performance semiconductors.
