Large repeat order for 2nd Generation InPassion ALD
In early 2016 the 2nd Generation InPassion ALD tool was introduced by SoLayTec and one of our main Asian customers installed this type of tool in their high efficiency production facility. After testing it in mass production for several months, the stability and quality of the machine was proven. For their next expansion plan, this customer ordered another three 2nd Generation InPassion ALD tools from SoLayTec.11063 Downloads
SoLayTec launches new product and proves cell efficiency gain of 0,2% compared to PECVD AlOx
New products of Tempress and SoLayTec were revealed during the last two exhibitions. Especially for the next PERC2.0 expansions those products are in high demand by the market. The 2nd Generation InPassion ALD combined with the newest direct PECVD can produce up to 130MW annually including the integrated anneal process. Furthermore, two weeks ago the 25th Intersolar exhibition and EUPVSEC conference were held in Munich. In several presentations the InPassion ALD was an important topic. Research institute Imec presented its latest results regarding n-type IBC cells on 156x156mm using Al2O3 from SoLayTec. Furthermore, Hanwha Q Cells presented its evaluation results of InPassion ALD versus MW-PECVD and SoLayTec gave an overview of its successful PERC integration project of one of their key customers.11361 Downloads

SoLayTec wins repeat and new order for InPassion ALD from two Chinese Tier One solar manufacturers
The new InPassion ALD user, which is one of the tier one players in China, will start multi cSi PERC development in its in-house R&D centre. Delivery is planned within this month.
The customer that has ordered a second InPassion ALD, has been a customer of SoLayTec since 2011.
"Since 2011 SoLayTec has been working very closely with this Tier one customer and SoLayTec is proud that they have accepted our InPassion ALD in full production last year," said Roger Görtzen, co-founder of SoLayTec and manager marketing and sales.
imec, SoLayTec, Tempress and meco achieve Record Efficiency (22%) for Large Area cSi N-PERT
Leuven (Belgium)—Jan. 15, 2015—Nano-electronics research center imec announced today that it has improved its large area n-type PERT (passivated emitter, rear totally diffused) crystalline silicon (Si) solar cell on 6" commercially available n-type Cz-Si wafers, now reaching a top conversion efficiency of 22.02 percent (calibrated at ISE CalLab). This is the highest efficiency achieved for this type of 2-side-contacted solar cell on an industrial large area wafer size.13543 Downloads

imec, meco and SoLayTec Achieve Record Efficiency for Large Area Industrial cSi n-PERT solar cell
Nano-electronics research center imec, reported today a n-type PERT crystalline silicon (Si) solar cell fabricated on a large area wafer (15.6cm x 15.6 cm) reaching a top conversion efficiency of 21.5 percent (calibrated at ISE Callab). This is the highest efficiency achieved for this type of solar cell on an industrial large area wafer size. The adoption of ALD Al2O3 based-passivation for the p+ emitter resulted in an average improvement in cell efficiency of about 0.3% absolute with respect to passivation by wet thermal oxidation.11382 Downloads
