  • Laser Scribing of Thin Film Solar Panels (.pdf)
    Solar cells based on thin-film devices may well take the lead as the next generation solar panel technology. A key aspect in the cost effective manufacturing of large solar panels is the thin film patterning process on a-Si. The laser based patterning is accomplished in three critical scribing
  • Solar Panels Case History (.pdf)
    This case history describes how one customer used PrevEx flammabiltiy analyzers to monitor its thin-film deposition onto solar cells.
  • Thin Film Solar Success Story
    We needed to transfer the partial design from the client's previous supplier to ATS. Our client needed us to complete the design and build three initial qualification units within 10 weeks. We successfully completed a review of the current status of the design, determined what the required changes
  • Particle Size and Shape Analysis of Abrasives in Solar Industry (.pdf)
    a solid block or thin film, which represents 40 to 60% of the production cost of solar cells.
  • A Concise Chronicle of Thin-film Maturation
    From coating architectural glass to manipulate light and heat transmission, to the design of absorber layers for solar cells to magnetic thin films for electronic data storage. The technology may be considered largely a processing product of the 20th century, but its roots extend much further
  • Microstructural Characterization of Thin Film Photovoltaics using Electron Backscatter Diffraction (.pdf)
    Worldwide demand for electricity is growing and the driving force to develop new technologies and materials for alternative energy generation has been increasing due to economic, environmental, and political factors in recent years. Solar power is one such alternative being investigated through
  • Semicon West Puts Photovoltaics, Thin-Film Batteries in the Limelight
    not on anyone 's radar, " says Tracy. Amongst all this gloom, the only bright spot for manufacturers is solar energy. A year ago, a shortage of polysilicon was putting a crimp in photovoltaic production, so there was little reason to ramp up spending on equipment. But the shortage has passed. "Additional
  • Test Methods for Metallization Paste (.pdf)
    There currently are no industry standards for solar metallization paste. The following are test methods that have been adopted by many thin film photovoltaic solar cell manufacturers and are used by Indium Corporation to test volume resistivity and contact resistance, two major physical properties
