Transparent Conductive Oxide (TCO)
Beneq aerosol TCO coatings for architectural and solar glass
A transparent conductive oxide coating, abbreviated TCO, is a doped metal oxide thin film predominantly used in optoelectronic devices, for example flat panel displays and photovoltaics (incl. inorganic and organic devices as well as dye-sensitized solar cells). Most TCOs are manufactured with polycrystalline or amorphous microstructures. On average, the aforementioned applications use electrode materials that have >80% transmittance of incident light as well as conductivities >103 S/cm for efficient carrier transport.
Beneq offers transparent conductive oxide coatings for, among others, the following applications:
- Low-e for architectural glass (under construction)
- TCO for solar cells
