Solar Cell

Through evolving solar cell technology, harnessing solar power as a clean source of renewable energy is becoming ever more successful. Producing efficient and affordable devices is key to its widespread application, and this in turn relies on optimised fabrication and industrial inspection. At solar cell manufacturing company S’Tile, inspection is enhanced with the Olympus DSX500 digital light microscope and LEXT OLS4100 confocal laser scanning microscope. Enabling the development of a high-performance yet affordable design provides S’Tile with a competitive advantage, and the cutting edge research is explained in a new application note.     

The manufacturing process of S’Tile’s proprietary solar cell design involves many steps, each of which must be carefully and individually optimised for maximising solar cell performance. In developing and optimising this complex multi-step process, the Olympus DSX500 and LEXT OLS4100 have proved instrumental. Moreover, these systems provide an especially comprehensive approach for fast and efficient inspection when employed alongside specialised methods such as electrical resistance monitoring.
