Thin-film solar cells analysis for energy industry

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

The research and development in the field of thin-film solar cells is an on-going process to improve efficiency even further, and to reduce manufacturing costs. X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a field proven technology enabling users to control critical properties during development and manufacturing of the solar cells, such as elemental layer thickness and composition, improving quality and productivity, with resultant cost savings.

Metrology for the photovoltaics industry

by Bruker Corporation     based in Billerica, MASSACHUSETTS (USA)

Quality control to maximize efficiency is critical in the competitive photovoltaic industry. For some time solar texture has been thought to qualitatively affect solar cell efficiency. However, through large-area, 3D measurements and areal feature parameters, quantitative correlation of texture to efficiency has only recently been obtained. We now know that ISO 3D surface parameters linearly correlate with solar cell efficiency.

Process technologies for making solar cells

by Oxford Instruments plc     based in Abingdon, UNITED KINGDOM

Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology has developed a number of processes for the production of Photovoltaics (solar cells) using our flexible and powerful tools and with key technologies.

Evaporators technology for photovoltaic & Microelectronics industries

by EVALED - Veolia Water Technologies     based in Zoppola (PN), ITALY

The manufacturing process of the cells that make up the photovoltaic systems and the printed circuits require water in quantity and high quality. This water has to be managed wisely so as not to affect the productivity and the expenses of the plant.

Waste gas & wastewater treatment for the solar industry

by DAS Environmental Expert GmbH     based in Dresden, GERMANY

Generating solar energy is considered `green technology`, even though the production of solar cells based on silicon predominantly uses process stages that have been common practice in the semiconductor industry for many years. As in the semiconductor industry the production of solar cells employs dangerous and environmentally harmful substances, which require abatement according to legal provisions. The production of photovoltaic cells therefore is subject to strict requirements for treatment of waste gases and wastewater. Solutions need to be easy and cost-effective. The contaminated wastewaters and waste gases should, under no circumstances, lower performance, endanger the health and safety of humans, or otherwise negatively affect the availability of production facilities. The safety of the production line must be guaranteed at every step and in every operating situation.

Chemical Analyzing in Photovoltaics for the Solar Power Industry

by AppliTek NV - Environmental Analysis Division     based in Nazareth, BELGIUM

In the earlier days, the chemistry involved in solar cell manufacturing was relatively simple, using commodity chemicals. With cell efficiencies continuously on the rise and new cell concepts slowly being introduced with increased speed of processing, precise chemical concentration control is becoming crucial to obtain consistency and more cost-effective manufacturing of solar panels. This is possible by monitoring on-line the etching bath composition, a small but genuine step forward in your competitive advantage.
