China’s Guodian Orders Aixtron Tool For CPV Solar Cells

The 12x4-inch AIX 2600G3 IC reactor will be used for research and development.

Aixtron SE has an order from a new Chinese customer, Guodian International Economics & Trade Co. for an MOCVD system.

The contract is for one AIX 2600G3 IC reactor in a 12x4-inch configuration which will be dedicated to materials research for concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar cells.

Guodian placed the order in the fourth quarter of 2010 and the system will be delivered in the second quarter of 2011. The local Aixtron support team will install and commission the new reactor in a new clean-room at the GD Solar (JiangSu) Co., Ltd., Research Group.

Hong Song, Director of Solar Research Institute at Guodian, comments, “We look forward to the arrival of this powerful new addition to our capabilities in our research for high efficiency CPV solar cells. Already we have been shown how straightforward it is to achieve the requisite uniformity and run-to-run productivity characteristics with the AIX 2600G3 IC reactor."

“It has become one of the most popular equipments of this type within the CPV industry and will serve us well for many years. Our technical team already has considerable experience with the Aixtron Planetary Reactor technology. They will work well together with the specialist company support staff so I am sure the system will not be long in making a strong contribution to our efforts."
