We are specialized in the value chain for production of Si substrates for solar cells.

Our core competences are silicon crystal growth and characterisation of materials for solar cells. We have a unique pilot scale crystal growth laboratory

Our activities:

  • Silicon production development
  • Casting and crystal pulling
  • Wafer sawing
  • Material development

Our competence:

  • Crystallization
  • Characterization of structural and electrical parameters
  • Material properties
  • Numerical modeling
  • Manufacturing and process control

Typical tasks:

  • Find replacement for Ag in solar cells
  • Reduce wafer thickness
  • Reduce waste in PV production
  • Reduce Balance of System cost
  • Reduce defect formation in silicon during crystal growth
  • Reduce incorporation of impurities
