GT Advanced Technologies Inc. says it has achieved 100% mono yields from ingots cast in its DSS450 MonoCast technology. This is a 75% increase in yields using the same furnace configuration that the company first introduced at the end of January.

‘This achievement allows manufacturers of traditional multicrystalline wafers to produce the highest volume of full monocrystalline wafers in their DSS furnaces without the hybrid wafer by-products that result from bricks that contain material consisting of mono and multicrystalline material,’ notes Vikram Singh, GT's general manager of its PV group.
