NREL Purchases Aerosol Jet Deposition System For Deposition Development


Optomec, a provider of additive manufacturing systems for high-performance applications, says that the company's Aerosol Jet deposition system has been selected to be part of the U.S. Department of Energy's National Renewable Energy Laboratory's (NREL) Atmospheric Processing Platform in the Process Development and Integration Lab (PDIL).

The Aerosol Jet system, which will be installed at NREL's facility in Golden, Colo., will be used primarily to develop deposition processes for metallization and coatings to reduce the cost of producing crystalline silicon and thin-film solar cells.

The PDIL is located within the Science and Technology Facility, the newest laboratory space at NREL. The focus of research includes gaining a deeper understanding of semiconductor physics, creating better materials, developing novel device structures and improving manufacturing methods.
