BrightView Systems, an Israel-based production process optimization start-up, will team with the Thin-Film Photovoltaics Laboratory at the Neuchatel Institute of Microengineering (IMT) to target the optimization and effective control of optical and electrical cell properties for next generation thin-film technologies.

“Working closely with IMT enables us to fine-tune our solutions for process optimization to the most advanced cell structures ahead of their incorporation in the production lines”, said Benny Shoham, CEO of BrightView. “The excellent team at IMT is one of the true forces that brings device novelty to this industry and drives it to continuously improve efficiency, while our solutions are designed to address key challenges in mass producing these advanced structures.”
