Economic production technology for photovoltaics

27.07.2010
On the world’s largest photovoltaics exhibition and conference EU PVSEC in Valencia, Spain (September 6-9, 2010) the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT together with the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST will present newest production technology for the photovoltaic industry on the Fraunhofer joint booth B27 in hall 3, level 2.

For the first time the Fraunhofer IPA will present recent results of the EU project ASPIS to the professional audience. In the last months the project consortium under the coordination of the Fraunhofer IPA developed a first prototype of a new type of concentrator module in which sun tracking and concentrating Fresnel lenses are integrated in an innovative way. In addition, the researchers offer custom-tailored and cost-efficient solutions for handling and automation for various manufacturing processes.

On the subject of laser processes for photovoltaics the Fraunhofer ILT presents a system for structuring materials for thin film solar cells, equipped with an extremely cost-efficient mini laser of the size of a cigarette box. On site, silicon layers on glass substrate are structured to demonstrate the potential of modular processing systems for thin film photovoltaics.

In Fraunhofer IST’s magnetron sputtering system surfaces can be coated with completely new material combinations. For the field of photovoltaics, the specialists from Braunschweig present diverse application examples.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
