Redsolar boosts solar capacity with Veeco MOCVD tools

The firm is buying more TurboDisc K475 reactors to grow III-V based CPV cells to ramp up production
The Guangdong Redsolar Photovoltaic Tech Co., Ltd. (Redsolar), a producer of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar cells in China, has purchased multiple Veeco TurboDisc K475 As/P MOCVD systems.

The TurboDisc K475 MOCVD tool is a fully integrated deposition system that creates high quality compound semiconductor layers for CPV devices.

“China’s appetite for highly-efficient green energy sources remains strong,” says Ji, General Manager of Redsolar. “Veeco’s proven, best-in-class MOCVD systems reduce the production costs of CPV solar cells and allow us to easily ramp production in a modular way with supreme reliability at the lowest cost of ownership.”

Redsolar is currently operating several TurboDisc K475 MOCVD systems that were purchased in 2012.

“We are pleased with the additional orders this quarter from Redsolar and excited about the potential for more energy efficient solar applications,” says a delighted Jim Jenson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MOCVD System Operations.

He continues, “The K475 is the perfect choice for concentrated solar cells because our critical integrated reactor design produces excellent uniformity and repeatability with the highest uptime between maintenance. All those features lead to unmatched product yield and throughput for our customers.”

The TurboDisc K475 is equipped to maximise uptime and throughput by leveraging Veeco’s technology expertise in the GaN LED market. It also provides vital integration of critical reactor design elements. These include a tunable FlowFlange, advanced RealTemp 200 temperature control and ultimate TurboDisc high velocity laminar flow. What's more, the integrated system load-lock remains under constant vacuum to minimise downtime between runs. All are key cost-savings driving the efficiency of the K475.

 

Connecting the Compound Semiconductor Industry

The 13th CS International conference builds on the strengths of its predecessors, with around 40 leaders from industry and academia delivering presentations that fall within five key themes: Ultrafast Communication; Making Headway with the MicroLED; Taking the Power from Silicon, New Vectors for the VCSEL, and Ultra-wide Bandgap Devices.

Delegates attending these sessions will gain insight into device technology, find out about the current status and the roadmap for the compound semiconductor industry, and discover the latest advances in tools and processes that will drive up fab yields and throughputs.
