Singulus Technologies Introduces New Thin-Film PV Processing System

Singulus Technologies AG has unveiled a new processing system for vacuum-coating copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) and copper indium sulfide (CIS) thin-film solar cells.

The new system responds to current demand in the photovoltaic industry for development tools that enhance the efficiency of thin-film solar cells while cutting production costs, the company says, adding that it has received its first order for the new system.

The machine can be used for vertical vacuum-based coating of glass substrates, which gives access to a new field of operations in the high-growth market for thin-film photovoltaics and adds another production stage to its range of processing systems for the manufacture of CIGS/CIS cells, the company explains.
