EpiWorks Aixtron 2600 G3 reactor used in the first step towards producing low-cost solar cells with the highest conversion efficiency.

 EpiWorks, a developer and manufacturer of compound semiconductor epitaxial wafers has announced a major milestone in the development of technology to address the concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) market.

The firm has demonstrated a 6-inch, compound semiconductor PV wafer capability that is the first step in establishing the infrastructure and capability to produce low-cost solar cells with the highest conversion efficiency.

David Ahmari, EVP of Business Development at EpiWorks commented “We are a high-tech manufacturer with an established track record supporting the wireless industry with volume production, but over the past several years we have also established a strong solar cell capability. As we have done with our wireless customers, EpiWorks is excited to push the industry technology roadmap while establishing this critical part of the PV wafer production supply chain.”

He continued, “To ensure rapid and successful adoption of this CPV technology, EpiWorks is working closely with key partners, including a US-based semiconductor manufacturer listed on the NASDAQ.” “Our ability to provide leading technology combined with high quality, volume production, is a unique skill set that creates new opportunities for our customers.”
