As part of its commercialization path and development of future applications, ACT Aurora Control Technologies has started a joint research project with the International Solar Energy Research Center Konstanz on inline solar cell production measurement, based on ACT Aurora’s Decima system.
“As the solar cell industry continues to expand and becomes increasingly competitive, it is critically important for cell manufacturers to be both cost-effective and consistently deliver top-quality products,” commented Rudolf Harney, managing director, Industrial Solar Cells at ISC Konstanz. “Aurora’s technology for continuous inline measurement of key cell parameters during cell production shows great potential as a key tool for manufacturers to achieve these goals.”
“We consequently expect that this project will contribute strongly to our ongoing work to ensure that our products meet industry requirements and provide the best possible results for our customers,” added Gordon Deans, Aurora’s president and CEO.
Aurora said that project results over the coming months are expected to support technical interactions with customers.
