Q.ANTUM Technology supercharges ordinary crystalline solar cells and modules. Unlike expensive high-end solar modules, Q.ANTUM does not involve a complex new cell design. No special system components are required. Q.ANTUM delivers exceptional performance under real-world conditions. No PV system sees direct sunlight every minute of every day. Therefore, we designed Q.ANTUM to generate more power when the sun is rising, setting, or even behind clouds. You'll also see higher yields in the middle of hot and sunny summers, and during clear fall and winter days, when the sun is not as high in the sky. We decided to focus on all of the key determinants of performance, not just the ones that make our datasheets look good. We enhanced low-light performance, but also the output of our modules across a range of temperatures - all to bring you higher profits.
The rear surfaces of Q.ANTUM solar cells are treated with a special nano coating that functions much like a typical household mirror. Rays of sunlight that would otherwise go to waste are reflected back through the cell to generate more electricity. Laser-fired contacts complement the nano coating to enhance the module's electrical properties, increasing its efficiency considerably.
- Q.ANTUM HISTORY
High performance meets mass production: In 2011, Q.ANTUM Technology set a new worldrecord for crystalline solar cells by achieving 19.5 % efficiency. Q CELLS began producing modules based on Q.ANTUM in 2012, putting some of the highest-output modules available in its product lineup. The 2013 and 2014 PHOTON module tests ranked our Q.PRO-G2 235 module at the top of all the polycrystalline modules tested. In June 2016 we achieved a new world record in polycrystalline module efficiency of 19.5 %. By July 2017, we reached a new production milestone of 1 billion Q.ANTUM solar cells, equivalent to around 5 GW since production started.
