Veeco Instruments Inc. has released the NT9100S Optical Profiler System, which the company says is specifically designed to optimize photovoltaic cell production and process development.
The NT9100S is based upon the workhorse NT Series product line and adds a custom 156-mm programmable stage for edge-to-edge measurements on a six-inch PV cell. Other standard features include a porous vacuum chuck that securely and safely affixes a standard PV cell, automation software, field stitching software and patent-pending, ultra-uniform dual-LED illumination.
Running on the Vision software platform, the NT9100S provides access to over 200 distinct analyses, and over 1,000 critical parameters for process control and monitoring, the company adds.
