Infrared technology from Heraeus Noblelight offers many uses for high technology. The most popular high-tech applications for IR process heat are solar cells/photovoltaics and semiconductor manufacture. For photovoltaics, IR can be applied in the doping, diffusion, sintering, tabbing and stringing phases. In the semiconductor industry, manufacture of silicon wafers, floatglass and more can be aided by the precise, targeted properties of IR.
The benefits of infrared heat can also be achieved under extreme process conditions.
Thanks to the newly developed quartz reflector, the heating of carrier materials before or during coating processes can be carried out more efficiently in vacuum or at high ambient temperatures.
