*** Primestar Solar Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 2 -- Primestar Solar, Arvada, Colo., has been assigned a patent (8,361,232) developed by Russell Weldon Black, Longmont, Colo., for a "vapor deposition apparatus and process for continuous indirect deposition of a thin film layer on a substrate." The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus and related process are provided for vapor deposition of a sublimated source material as a thin film on a photovoltaic (PV) module substrate. A deposition head is configured for sublimating a source material supplied thereto. The sublimated source material condenses onto a transport conveyor disposed below the deposition head. A substrate conveyor is disposed below the transport conveyor and conveys substrates in a conveyance path through the apparatus such that an upper surface of the substrates is opposite from and spaced below a lower leg of the transport conveyor. A heat source is configured adjacent the lower leg of the transport conveyor. The source material plated onto the transport conveyor is sublimated along the lower leg and condenses onto to the upper surface of substrates conveyed by the substrate conveyor." The patent application was filed on April 29, 2010 (12/770,027). The full-text of the patent can be found at http://patft.uspto.gov/netacgi/nph-Parser Sect1=PTO1&Sect2=HITOFF&d=PALL&p=1&u=%2Fnetahtml%2FPTO%2Fsrchnum.htm&r=1&f=G&l=50&s1=83,61,232.PN.&OS=PN/83,61,232&RS=PN/83,61,232 Written by Amal Ahmed; edited by Jaya Anand.



*** Primestar Solar Assigned Patent ALEXANDRIA, Va., Feb. 2 -- Primestar Solar, Arvada, Colo., has been assigned a patent (8,361,229) developed by four co-inventors for a "seal configuration for a system for continuous deposition of a thin film layer on a substrate." The co-inventors are Max William Reed, Niwot, Colo., Russell Weldon Black, Longmont, Colo., Scott Daniel Feldman-Peabody, Golden, Colo., and Mark Jeffrey Pavol, Arvada, Colo.

The abstract of the patent published by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office states: "An apparatus and associated method of operation is provided for vapor deposition of a sublimated source material, such as CdTe, as a thin film on discrete photovoltaic (PV) module substrates that are conveyed in a continuous, non-stop manner through the apparatus. The apparatus includes a deposition head configured for receipt and sublimation of the source material. The deposition head has a distribution plate at a defined distance above a horizontal conveyance plane of an upper surface of the substrates conveyed through a deposition area within the apparatus. The sublimated source material moves through the distribution plate and deposits onto the upper surface of the substrates as they are conveyed through the deposition area. The substrates move into and out of the deposition area through entry and exit slots that are defined by transversely extending entrance and exit seals. The seals are disposed at a gap distance above the upper surface of the substrates that is less than the distance or spacing between the upper surface of the substrates and the distribution plate. The seals have a ratio of longitudinal length (in the direction of conveyance of the substrates) to gap distance of from about 10:1 to about 100:1."
