Publications Back-side passivation in industrial mass-production.

Almere, the Netherlands – November 24, 2016 – The majority of new cell designs clearly benefits from the use of Al2O3 as surface passivation (e.g. PERC, n-type, IBC). In this work, a comparison between PECVD and ALD is made based on layer integration and deposition system performance. When taking into account the intrinsic passivation properties… (Read more)

The effect of the RTP2 annealing step on the NiSi film thermal stability.

Almere, the Netherlands – November 24, 2016 – In this paper, the influence of the formation history of a thin Ni1-xPtx:Si film on its thermal stability is investigated. Film degradation manifests itself as a transformation of the continuous film into physically separated islands, resulting in a sheet resistance increase. Higher silicide peak formation temperatures were… (Read more)

Al203 in an Evolving market.

Almere, the Netherlands – November 23, 2016 – The ongoing evolution from Al BSF cells to new PERC and n-type cell concepts will continue in the coming years. This production shift is made possible by the development of high volume capable Al2O3 deposition systems. The intrinsic properties of ALD are a perfect match with the… (Read more)

The ‘Nchanted’ Project

Almere, the Netherlands – March 31, 2016 – Even though solar electricity products have seen a significant growth in the past years, the introduction of novel technologies is needed for further cost and price reduction, and to maintain the current learning curve in order to keep one step ahead of the competition. The NChanted project… (Read more)
