Aixtron MOCVD Technology Impresses Azur Space

The firm has expanded its terrestrial CPV solar cell production capacity with an Aixtron reactor.

Aixtron’s MOCVD system technology has been successfully implemented at Azur Space Solar Power GmbH.

Aixtron says the Heilbronn, Germany based company has expressed its complete satisfaction with the performance capabilities and Aixtron service for the production of concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar cells for terrestrial applications.

Aixtron Europe´s support team has recently carried out the commissioning of the reactor in a state-of-the-art clean-room facility at the Azur production complex in Germany.

Bernd Schulte, COO of Aixtron, comments, “We have worked with Azur for many years so there is a strong mutual confidence with Aixtron as an experienced technology partner. This will be continued with the new generation system, so we look forward to an excellent future collaboration. Azur is highly capable of exploiting the process performance that is built-in with Aixtron equipment."

“We selected Aixtron´s MOCVD technology due to its outstanding system-to-system reliability," says Klaus-Dieter Rasch, Azur Space Solar Power GmbH. Aixtron MOCVD technology is the best choice for our application not the least being because of the straightforward installation, commissioning and support service. The company has repeatedly demonstrated their flexibility to react promptly and efficiently to customer production capacity expansion needs. Excellent energy efficiency and high yield are amongst the other notable characteristics that have impressed technical staff at Azur."

Azur Space Solar Power supplies bare solar cells for space and terrestrial CPV customers worldwide. Based on more than 40 years experience in space solar cell technology, its range of products covers several types of silicon and III-V solar cells on Germanium.
