Intersolar 2014 - GT Advanced Technologies to Present Its Merlin(TM) Cell Metallization and Interconnect Technology at Intersolar North America

Intersolar North America Conference July 8, 2014 in San Francisco, California

MERRIMACK, N.H., July 7, 2014 -- GT Advanced Technologies (Nasdaq:GTAT) is presenting at the 2014 Intersolar North America conference being held in San Francisco, California, July 8-10, 2014. On Tuesday, July 8, at 9:00 am, Dr. Gopal Prabhu, Sr. Director of Technology will deliver a presentation about GT's recently announced Merlin™ technology entitled, Innovative Cell Metallization and Interconnect Technology for Improved Module Performance and Lower Installed System Cost.


Merlin is a revolutionary interconnect technology that enables efficiency and cost reductions across the entire solar value chain. Unlike other interconnect technologies, Merlin is designed to dramatically increase durability of the modules when subjected to extensive thermal cycling and vibration testing. Additionally, it is a simple drop-in technology that minimizes the risk of adoption by avoiding the use of new materials in the construction of the module while keeping additional cap-ex to a minimum. While Merlin™ has been successfully developed and tested primarily for implementation in standard multi and mono crystalline silicon solar cells, it is uniquely suited for high current modules incorporating bifacial cells as well.
