Inline solar cell measurement equipment specialist Aurora Solar Technologies (AST) has secured a new Collaborative Research Agreement (CRA) with the Solar Energy Research Institute of Singapore (SERIS), which includes the previous work planned on heterojunction (HJ) cells but also creates opportunities in the growing R&D market for solar cell design and qualification.

AST will also supply SERIS with its latest ‘Decima’ infrared measurement system, which will be used to characterize the advanced solar cells developed at the Singapore-based R&D facility. 

Dr. Armin Aberle, SERIS’ CEO said, “In our work to advance the state of the art in the solar energy industry, SERIS works closely with numerous manufacturers and production equipment vendors. We expect that our work with Aurora will make a strong contribution to this industry development.”

AST noted that the its ongoing HJ cell collaboration with SERIS has meant that several solar cell manufacturers have already expressed interest in evaluating Aurora’s HJ capabilities.  

Gordon Deans, Aurora’s Chief Operating Officer commented: “We have established a strong industry presence with a superior product and increasing orders. This important collaboration will now build on this by combining SERIS’ research resources and broad industry contacts with our Decima IR technology base and commercial capabilities. This will enable us to expand our technology capabilities and customer base to meet the continuous demands for more efficient cell designs and process improvements in this explosive global industry,”

The newly signed CRA with SERIS means AST will be joining major cell manufacturers and production equipment makers collaborating with the R&D centre on the next generation of solar cells, modules and manufacturing technologies.
