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: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Mimicking nature's cellular architectures via 3-D printing

Research offers new level of control over the structure of 3-D printed materials

Nature does amazing things with limited design materials. Grass, for example, can support its own weight, resist strong wind loads, and recover after being...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
