Neuchâtel, Febuary 2018 – INDEOtec SA (Switzerland) reports the successful completion of system acceptance tests for two of its customers, namely King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST) in Saudi Arabia, and Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg, Germany. The acceptance test milestones have been completed for both projects well in time; the comprehensive and partly challenging process parameter tests for the heterojunction device generation have been passed successfully and surpassed the expectations especially for the intrinsic and doped a-Si:H layers. “Our team is excited about the process results and the system quality. We are now really looking forward to do our research work with the new tool.”, states Jochen Rentsch, Head of Department „PV Production Technology“ at Fraunhofer ISE. “For our research team here in Saudi Arabia the high system quality and the timely, on-the-spot process qualification is indeed convincing and confirmed the capabilities of INDEOtec.”, commented Prof. Stefaan de Wolf from KAUST. For both projects the joint deposition of all layers per each wafer side in the same reactor repeatedly proved the functionality of the concept of the Anti-Cross-Contamination-Treatment (ACCT) for the HIT device production.
