Laser-Welded Seals for Polymer-Free Glass/Glass Modules

Research output: NRELPoster


This project explored the use of femtosecond laser welding to form strong, hermetic seals for glass/glass modules. The results showed that glass/glass fs laser welds, when coupled to a new module design, are strong enough to enable a polymer-free module, potentially extending warrantees and forming an easily-recycled product.
