Xunlight Corporation, a solar technology spin-off from the University of Toledo, is shining. The burgeoning company, based in Toledo, engages in the development, manufacture, and marketing of photovoltaic modules that convert sunlight into electricity. Xunming Deng launched Xunlight Corp. with his wife in 2002 while a physics professor at UT. They started with a modest plan to manufacture thin, flexible solar cells created using sheets of stainless steel. Now, with 100-plus employees, the little-company-that-could continues to expand. Xunlight recently sold it first shipment — back to UT for an advanced energy and innovation laboratory. The company develops thin-film silicon based photovoltaic products and manufacturing equipment for high-throughput production of flexible and lightweight photovoltaic modules at low cost.
