Commercial Solutions for Solar Cell Manufacturers from Veeco

Veeco Instruments Inc. has introduced a line of new production-scale PV-Series(TM) Thermal Deposition Sources, enabling copper indium gallium selenide (CIGS) thin film solar manufacturers to more quickly transition from pilot to full scale solar cell production. Veeco's new line of thermal deposition sources for CIGS includes PV-Series SUMO(R) (for copper, indium and gallium) and PV-Series Valved (for selenium and sulfur) for R & D and production environments.

"Veeco's new PV-Series sources for CIGS represent the industry's first commercially available production-scale thermal deposition solution for thin film solar manufacturing," said Jeffrey Hohn, Vice President and General Manager, Veeco MBE Operations. "We believe that our PV-Series sources will accelerate our customers' production ramp, reduce capital costs and provide more reliable operation, compared to currently available sources or solar cell manufacturers' in-house custom designs."

In addition to the new thermal deposition sources, Veeco's suite of solar technology solutions includes Metal Organic Chemical Vapor Deposition (MOCVD) systems for multi-junction solar cells and a complete suite of thin film and surface roughness metrology systems, including atomic force microscopes, stylus profilers and optical interferometer technology.
