About Lightwave Power
Lightwave Power, Inc. is developing solar energy products based on nanoarrays and 2-dimensional photonic crystal arrays. The company's technology pathway includes the development of large area thin sheets of repeating nano- and micro-sized structures that can be designed to absorb, convert, re-emit and guide light. These structures are very thin, are generally fashioned out of common metals and dielectrics and manufactured on flexible substrates using a roll-to-roll process, leading to low manufacturing cost projections. The company's products are being designed to solve the important problem that current solar electric products are too costly for many applications. Lightwave Power filed its first solar energy patent in March 2008. Lightwave Power currently is co-located with MicroContinuum, Inc. in Cambridge, MA.
