INDEOtec SA

INDEOtec SA

Indeotec SA is a new, emerging manufacturer of highly innovative thin film deposition equipment. Founded in 2007 in Neuchâtel, Switzerland, the company recently started to fully commercialize its successful Octopus concept. The system has been developed with strong focus at the deposition of passivation layers of superior quality for heterojunction cell devices. The Octopus II system introduces a couple of new PECVD reactor elements for RF and VHF plasma deposition such as the Mirror reactor concept, which enables the top and bottom side thin film substrate deposition without the need of substrate flipping and vacuum breakage. The proprietary reactor design and a unique electrode arrangement allow a low plasma ignition and keep ion bombardments at extremely low levels.

MacDermid

MacDermid

MacDermid Enthone’s Photovoltaics Solutions business provides metallization chemistry for plating conductors on silicon cells.  Our HELIOS product portfolio is integrated with laser ablation & plating equipment.  The Plating on Silicon (PoSi) process includes: 1) pre-treatment, 2) nickel contact 0.5µm, 3) copper conductor 6µm, and 4) silver protection 0.1µm.  By eliminating front grid silver paste, HELIOS reduces conductor costs by 70% and reduces conductor light shadowing by 50%.  This lowest cost, highest efficiency technology achieves adhesion better than that of screen printed paste.  Production modules exceed IEC 61215 specifications.  The investment ROI is less than 18 months.  Paste is in the Past.  HELIOS PoSi is ready today for standard p-type designs, as well as HIT, IBC, PERC, and all n-type constructions.

UNSW

UNSW

The UNSW School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering grew out of the Australian Research Council Photovoltaics Centre of Excellence in response to the growing industry of renewable energy. Building on world-leading research, including holding the record for the most efficient silicon solar cell for over two decades, the Bachelor of Engineering in Photovoltaics and Solar Energy Engineering was launched, soon followed by a Bachelor of Engineering in Renewable Energy Engineering.  We offer education in a dynamic area, some of the finest research in the world and the chance to partner with industry in an exciting field. For over two decades The University of New South Wales has been a world leader in research and commercialisation of high performance silicon solar cells.  The UNSW School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering was established in order to enable a greater number of students to specialise in photovoltaics (the science and the engineering practice of turning sunshine directly into electricity by using solar cells). With energy becoming an increasingly important world-wide issue, the breadth of our teaching in Photovoltaic Engineering was increased to include Renewable Energy Engineering. On the postgraduate level, we currently have many PhD and Masters Degree candidates and many of these will go on to work world-wide in the explosively growing photovotaics or renewable energy industries. At the last count, 35 of our higher degree graduates had CEO, CTO or other senior management positions in some of the world's largest photovoltaics companies.
