Industrial applications

From the colorization and decolorization of glass to coatings for digital x-ray detectors: The industrial applications of selenium are numerous and widely diversified. Selenium is a component of CIS/CIGS thin film solar cells. CIS stands for copper (Cu), indium (In) and selenium (Se). In comparison with the usual solar cells, the production of CIS solar cells requires less semi-conducting material and less energy. This reduces the production costs and improves the environmental assessment.
