The month of August has shot right by, but not without a few studio developments
I’ve been working on a new method to encapsulate my solar cells. All of the solar panels that I use the artwork are custom, studio built from single crystal solar cells.
The silicon wafer is the functional heart of the solar panel, but its thin and fairly fragile. To protect from damage and water, the wafers must be sealed behind a piece of glass. The process I’ve developed isn’t the quickest way to accomplish this, but the panels are very durable and the encapsulant works well with the structure and shape of the cells.
