Commercially available semiconducting paint, ink, extrusion material? Photovoltaic properties? Answered

Just wondering if anyone has a line on something resembling these keywords. Considering trying to print solar cells. Please do not respond telling me why this is not possible. I am more than grateful, however, for any info about the hurdles I would need to overcome.

I have the printer if you have or know how to make the ink. I have built a printer for printing on thick items such as ceramic. This could eliminate the heat problem if you printed on film. The film could possibly melt where as something like ceramic could help dissipate the heat making for a more trouble free solar cell. Philip

nice, I specifically would like to know what materials they use and try to adapt the technique to a fab@home type scenario. Any ideas?
