First of all, on behalf of Touch Display Research Inc., we wish you a Happy New Year.

In early January, I’ll travel to Las Vegas for CES 2016. At CES, we expect to see:

Cambrios silver nanowire in solar cell mass production

December 9, 2015

Recently, Cambrios invited Touch Display Research for an update briefing at their facility in Sunnyvale, California. I had a chance to catch up with my old industry friends: Cambrios’ CEO Mr. John Lemoncheck, VP of marketing Mr. Sri Peruvemba and Senior Director of marketing Mr. Raghu Gupta.  They showed me a flexible portable solar cell.  Crystalsol based in Austria made the flexible solar panel with Cambrio’s silver nanowire transparent conductor–ClearOhm. The final solar product is selling for $70 each in Asia and Africa currently (not in US yet).
