More Efficient Thin Film Solar Cells

A blast from the past, if you may recall, but current technologies allow for creation of finer lasers that can be used to etch high quality channels into the film. This method is much more efficient than the printing method currently used in thin film solar cell manufacturing; also, it etches the film at a faster rate ( in terms of meters per second).

The only drawback from these is that the source does not cite any direct effect of this method to lower the prices of the thin film solar cells.
