Helping PV cell manufacturers lower the cost

Helping PV cell manufacturers lower the cost of cell production solar energy is proving to be a viable solution to the growing demand for clean, renewable energy generation.
Thin film layer depositions play a key role in the fabrication of efficient solar cells.To make solar a viable energy option we need to bring down the cost of cells per Watt,the use of rotating magnetrons for thin film deposition is playing a major role in achieving this goal. Higher target utilization and deposition rates, higher process stability, higher sputter efficiency and reduced coater downtime all combine to bring down the overall cost of PV cell production.”
We work closely with our customers to understand their individual material requirements. In many cases our R&D team undertakes in-house sputter testing as well as engineering at customer sites resulting in a customized solution. We are also continuously improving the target materials and thickness.
