November 18, 2011 — MVSystems Inc. received several tool orders for thin-film silicon photovoltaics development. The cluster tools will be used to develop amorphous and nano-silicon solar cells, as well as advanced heterojunction designs.

MVS  PECVD and sputtering process chambers order wins:
Instituto Nacional de Astrofisica, Optica y Electronica, Puebla, Mexico;
Centro de Investigacion en Energia, Ciudad Universitaria, Mexico;
A major European energy company.

Proprietary showerhead RF electrodes orders:
CNRS;
Ecole Polytechnique (France);
Solar Energy Research Institute, Singapore.

Shipped orders for cluster tools (PECVD, sputtering systems, in-vacuum flip station):
