SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES modified its SILEX wet-chemical batch silicon cleaning and etch system, introducing an Isopropanol (IPA)-free texturing process for mono-crystalline silicon solar cell fab.
Despatch Industries launched SolectFire technology, integrated into its CF Series firing furnace platform. Efficiency gains of up to 0.09% were acheived when SolectFire controlled the firing step, and the technology enables new pastes and firing processes.
XsunX announced that its CIGS thin film solar cell technology, associated with the use of thermal co-evaporation techniques to produce the CIGS solar absorbing layer, acheived 14% efficiency, then 15.09% a week later. (Updated November 9, 2010)
Solibro GmbH, a subsidiary of Q-Cells SE, has acheived 17.4% power conversion efficiency with its thin-film copper/indium/gallium/selenide (CIGS) Q.SMART PV module technology.
Solar module maker Canadian Solar used DuPont Solamet photovoltaic metallization pastes from DuPont Microcircuit Materials in its ELPS cells, acheiving 19.5% solar cell conversion efficiency for c-Si cells using metal wrap through (MWT) technology.
The Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH, Emmerthal, Germany) used DEK Solar's PVP1200 print platform and specialized screens to acheive 19.4% crystalline silicon solar photovoltaic (PV) cell efficiency.
'The technological breakthroughs we have acheived coupled with our expertise, has enabled us to take a qualitative leap forward in our power tower technology.'
Dark Field Technologies won an order for multiple thin film PV inspection and metrology systems with a value in excess of US$500,000 from a top tier manufacturer of high-efficiency copper indium gallium di-selenide (CIGS) solar cells.
MiaSole is in volume production of 13% efficiency copper/indium/gallium/selenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic solar panels at its Silicon Valley facility. Production panel efficiency has increased by 30% in 2011, and cost/Watt was reduced about 30% as well.
David Genova, Rudolph Technologies, discusses process control software in solar photovoltaics manufacturing. The benefits of improved operations and competitiveness can be acheived, but some fabs will need to put in some IT work.
