Advanced Technology for HJT, Perovskite, and CIGS manufacturing
INFICON has almost six decades of thin film experience in maximizing productivity and yield in manufacturing photovoltaic products. Continuous deposition control can be used to maximize reproducibility and uniformity by monitoring and controlling accumulated thickness in situ and in real time, providing the best measurement resolution that does not require frequent venting or the use of consumables. For heterojunction (HJT) solar cells, perovskite solar cells, and thin film panel manufacturing, we provide market-leading thin film deposition controllers and monitors, including the Cygnus® 2. Cygnus 2 is capable of controlling up to six independent rates as low as 0.1 Å/s, typical of advanced solar cell manufacturing processes. In addition to Cygnus 2 precision rate control, the Auto-Z feature provides unmatched thickness accuracy for exotic materials used in HJT and Perovskite solar cells. INFICON also provides market-leading instrumentation beyond quartz crystal microbalance controllers, including Guardian with unique enabling technology for CIGS solar cells, residual gas analyzers (mass spectrometers), helium leak detectors, RF sensing technology, and pressure measurement products.
