The real efficiency from a solar module depends on the mass of energy that is converted into solar power. Within photovoltaic industry very high efficiencies can be reached, but at least most of the time in laboratories with standard test conditions. Thus, Individual analysis and simulation is needed to really optimize the own solar cell manufacturing process.
With the offered service of analysis and optimization framework, the customer can gain in depth understanding of the areas for greatest potential efficiency gain in a quantified fashion. This service features an initial technical review of the customer’s equipment as well as his current wafer design. Based on this review, Heraeus and the institute will perform the optimization of the customer’s emitter to improve the interaction between emitter and our metallization paste. And Heraeus helps its customers to gain efficiencies within mass production as well.
