Sylarus Technologies

Sylarus is the leading US supplier of germanium (Ge) substrates to the solar power industry. Concentrated Photovoltaic (CPV) solar systems utilize high efficiency solar cells to convert up to 40% of the sun's energy into electrical energy. At the heart of these high efficiency solar cells is a multi layer semiconductor which uses Sylarus' Ge wafer as the base layer (substrate) for the multi-junction semiconductor.

CPV is making the transition from use in satellite power systems to utility scale terrestrial systems. The solar power market currently generates greater than $10B in annual revenue and is growing at over 30%.
