Maximize your analysis potential
Thin film solar cells offer promising potential in the photovoltaic field, utilizing various semiconductor materials like amorphous silicon, cadmium telluride, CIGS (copper, indium, gallium, sulfur/selenium), and CZTS (copper, zinc, tin, sulfur/selenium). These materials are deposited on diverse substrates, solid or flexible, metallic or non-conductive, allowing for customized designs with desired properties for numerous applications. While achieving efficiencies of about 20% in laboratory tests, fabricating efficient thin film solar cells for large area applications poses complex challenges. Manufacturers focus on optimizing production equipment, processes, and operations to increase efficiency, reliability, and cost-effectiveness. Spectruma®'s glow discharge spectrometers serve as invaluable measurement instruments for both rapid in-production checks and scientific research in this field.
