AVACO, a specialist manufacturer of sputtering (PVD) vacuum deposition equipment and atomic layer deposition (ALD) equipment, has announced the development of a new concept buffer layer deposition for photovoltaic cells.
By using its atomic layer deposition (ALD) process, AVACO claims to have improved energy conversion efficiency to approximately 30% higher than the conventional CIGS solar cell that uses Cds for the buffer layer.
“We are pleased with the latest ALD addition in our system product portfolio,” said Chuck Kim, business development director of AVACO. “Expansion of our core technology further strengthens and broadens our offering of deposition process solutions enabling AVACO to continue to provide our customers with innovative and leading-edge technology solutions to address today's manufacturing challenges.”
The company will be exhibiting at Solar Power International 2013 in Chicago next week at booth 751.
