NexWafe designs, develops and pilots a proprietary process to produce ultra-thin, high-efficiency, n-type mono green solar wafers, making photovoltaics more sustainable and efficient. Fully compatible with conventional cell manufacturing, NexWafe’s process reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 70%. NexWafe’s continuous, direct gas-to-wafer manufacturing minimizes kerf loss, resulting in wafers that are thinner and more efficient than conventional wafers. NexWafe’s in-line, ultra-scalable process extends PV solar’s cost-down roadmap and helps bring forward the energy transition. The company was spun out from Fraunhofer ISE in 2015. nexwafe.com/

VON ARDENNE was founded in 1991 as a spin-off of the former Manfred von Ardenne Research Institute. The company is based in Dresden, Germany, with subsidiaries in China, Japan, Malaysia, the USA and Vietnam. Manfred von Ardenne’s inventions formed the basis for our work today in the fields of vacuum, plasma and electron beam technology.

The major international manufacturers of crystalline and thin-film solar modules use our highly productive equipment for their production. We are also cooperating closely with them to develop the next generation of modules that will be even more efficient.

We have acquired an excellent process know-how based on the more than 150 coating systems we have installed for crystalline solar cells and thin-film solar module providers. This expertise has been incorporated into the development of coating systems for the next generations of high-efficiency solar cells.

VON ARDENNE is a major player in the heterojunction technology (HJT) market with the modular XEA|nova wafer coating system, which can be configured according to the needs of our customers. Such coating systems for an overall capacity of more than 3 GW are shipped to production lines all over the world
