(September 8, 2010) — BTU International (Nasdaq: BTUI) will highlight its next generation thermal processing capabilities at the 25th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition, this week in Valencia, Spain. BTU’s booth number is L2/H2/A5. Presentations from BTUI will cover phosphorous dopant surface conformality and surface passivation in Si solar cells.
Two technical posters will be presented by BTU during the conference portion of EUPVSEC. Both will be presented today, September 8. The first presentation is titled “Phosphorous Dopant Surface Conformality: a comparison study between inline and POCl3 diffused mono Si wafers.” The second is “Surface passivation of silicon solar cells by inline thermal oxidation.” BTU’s technical staff will be available in the booth to discuss these and other technical results.
BTU will showcase its in-line process systems that can lower cost without sacrificing cell efficiencies. For silicon photovoltaics, BTU will feature the Tritan drying and firing furnace. The Tritan includes TriSpeed technology that enables aggressive temperature spikes without compromising the drying, burnout and cooling process steps. BTU introduced the Tritan last year at EU PVSEC.
For phosphorus diffusion, BTU’s solution is the Meridian in-line diffusion system.
In thin film photovoltaics, BTU leverages its technologies and decades of experience to provide scalable, custom, in-line thermal process systems for rigid as well as flexible substrates.
