IIT Delhi Chooses Samco System For Solar Cells
Multi-chamber CVD system will be used for developing HIT (heterojunction with intrinsic thin-layer) solar cells
Samco, a manufacturer of plasma processing equipment for compound semiconductors, has announced that the Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi) has selected a Samco multi-chamber CVD system to develop a Heterojunction with Intrinsic Thin-layer (HIT) solar cell.
Due to an increase in India's per capita energy consumption and the national commitment to reduce CO2 emissions, the need for HIT solar cells has increased.
Samco has extensive knowledge of chemical vapour deposition techniques for HIT solar cell from working with universities in Japan.
The IIT Delhi director V Ramgopal Rao said: "Samco from Japan has been a leading player in providing multi-chamber CVD systems to academia worldwide for research on high efficiency HIT solar cells. IIT Delhi expects close research cooperation from Samco in developing HIT solar cells to enhance the efficiency and other performance parameters of these cells with the use of Samco's Multi-chamber CVD system."
Tsukasa Kawabe, president and COO of Samco, said: "We are delighted to announce this news. IIT Delhi and Samco have formed strong ties which we will continue to enhance." He adds, "Samco considers the Indian market to be one of its most important markets, and we will be focusing even more on it in the future, especially at IIT Delhi."
AngelTech Live III: Join us on 12 April 2021!
AngelTech Live III will be broadcast on 12 April 2021, 10am BST, rebroadcast on 14 April (10am CTT) and 16 April (10am PST)
and will feature online
versions of the market-leading physical events: CS International
and PIC International
PLUS a brand new Silicon Semiconductor International
Thanks to the great diversity of the semiconductor industry, we are always chasing new markets and developing a range of exciting technologies.
2021 is no different. Over the last few months interest in deep-UV LEDs has rocketed, due to its capability to disinfect and sanitise areas and combat Covid-19. We shall consider a roadmap for this device, along with technologies for boosting its output.
We shall also look at microLEDs, a display with many wonderful attributes, identifying processes for handling the mass transfer of tiny emitters that hold the key to commercialisation of this technology.
We shall also discuss electrification of transportation, underpinned by wide bandgap power electronics and supported by blue lasers that are ideal for processing copper.
Additional areas we will cover include the development of GaN ICs, to improve the reach of power electronics; the great strides that have been made with gallium oxide; and a look at new materials, such as cubic GaN and AlScN.
Having attracted 1500 delegates over the last 2 online summits, the 3rd event promises to be even bigger and better – with 3 interactive sessions over 1 day and will once again prove to be a key event across the semiconductor and photonic integrated circuits calendar.
So make sure you sign up today and discover the latest cutting edge developments across the compound semiconductor and integrated photonics value chain.
