The research and development in the field of thin-film solar cells is an on-going process to improve efficiency even further, and to reduce manufacturing costs.
X-ray fluorescence (XRF) is a field proven technology enabling users to control critical properties during development and manufacturing of the solar cells, such as elemental layer thickness and composition, improving quality and productivity, with resultant cost savings.
Typical applications focus on the analysis of:
Cadmium Telluride (CdTe),
Copper, Indium, Gallium, Diselenium (CIGS),
Copper, Indium, Diselenium (CIS) based thin-film solar cells.
