Efficient CIG precursor selenisation for CIGS cells
With more than 60 years‘ experience providing leading technology thermal solutions to the world, RESOLUTIONS, EBNER'S PV applications division, has entered into a strategic collaboration with Sunplugged, a start-up CIGS company based in Tirol, Austria.
As part of this collaboration, EBNER has installed one of their innovative atmospheric R2R Se furnaces at Sunplugged. This provides Sunplugged with the means to selenize and crystallize metal precursor layers in a single step. The furnace features a unique elemental Se vapor delivery system, which allows uniform selenium delivery and extremely high recovery rates of the Se not consumed in selenizing the precursor layer.
A pilot tool for CIGS on glass, utilizing the same selenium recovery technology, is currently in development.
