  • Industrial manufacturing on photovoltaic solar cell equipments in 2009

    Due to the sharp drop in polysilicon price, most solar cell manufacturers have reduced the price, which led to a fall of most manufacturers’ earnings. However, as to the output, most of them keep it the same to 2008 or more.A 25MW polysilicon solar cell production line calls for total investment of approximately RMB40 million to RMB50 million. According to the current competition conditions, it ...


  • Detecting defects in solar cells

    Solar panels, or photovoltaic (PV) modules, are being rapidly deployed across the world as costs fall and the need for sustainable, low-carbon energy grows. Being able to effectively characterise PV cells is a key factor in quality control during manufacturing and understanding their long-term behaviour. NPL researchers, Simon Hall, Matt Cashmore and John Blackburn, have developed a new technique ...

  • Boosting the power of solar cells

    New ways of squeezing out greater efficiency from solar photovoltaic cells are emerging from computer simulations and lab tests conducted by a team of physicists and engineers at MIT. Using computer modeling and a variety of advanced chip-manufacturing techniques, they have applied an antireflection coating to the front, and a novel combination of multi-layered reflective coatings and a tightly ...

  • New energy-efficient manufacture of perovskite solar cells that rivals silicon solar cells

    ‘Perovskite solar cells’ (PSCs) are less costly than conventional silicon solar cells, but one of their key components is energy-intensive to manufacture as high temperatures are needed. Now researchers have identified new alternative materials for this component which cut energy demands as they can be produced at low temperatures. PSCs replace the energy intensive, expensive, ...

  • NREL, SLAC Scientists Pinpoint Solar Cell Manufacturing Process

    Scientists at the Energy Department's National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) and SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory have been able to pinpoint for the first time what happens during a key manufacturing process of silicon solar cells. Their paper, "The formation mechanism for printed ...

  • Methods to increase indium supplies for the manufacture of thin-film solar cells

    Shortages of indium, a key metal found in thin-film solar cells, could limit their large-scale deployment in the future. A new study has outlined four ways that indium supplies could be increased to meet future demand. For example, indium could be extracted more efficiently from zinc ores, or historic wastes containing indium could be processed to extract the element. CIGS solar cells are a thin ...

  • Determination of fluoride species in etching baths used in the manufacturing process of solar cells

    Metrohm presents a method for the straightforward ion chromatographic determination of HF, HNO3, short-chain organic acids and H2SiF6 in acidic texturing baths used in the manufacturing process of solar cells. Standard ions such as fluoride, nitrate, acetate and sulfate are determined via suppressed conductivity detection while dissolved silicate is spectrophotometrically detected in the same run ...
