Green Energy Expo, DAEGU, SOUTH KOREA & WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, USA: The Heraeus Photovoltaic Business Unit, a world leader in developing front and back-side silver paste for crystalline solar cells, will be highlighting its series of pastes for N-Type cell designs at this year’s Green Energy Expo in Daegu, Korea, March 28-30, booth A510.
“We’re looking forward to exhibiting our production proven SOL9383 Series and our newest products for N-Type cell designs,” said Andy London, VP of Heraeus Materials Technology LLC in West Conshohocken. “Customers have manufactured cells with efficiencies greater than 19 percent with SOL9383. Our new pastes for N-type designs approach 20 percent efficiency and also provide higher output power.”
The SOL9383 Series are aluminum doped silver conductor pastes for N-Type monocrystalline silicone solar cell wafers with P+ surface. This new series is optimized for high throughput processing and provides fine line resolution for advanced cell designs. The SOL9383 Series also provides low contact resistance and can be co-fired with commercially available silver pastes. Heraeus has mass produced this product for over two years, and is the only paste manufacturer to mass produce N-Type cell design pastes.
Heraeus manufactures high volumes of thick film pastes for some of the most prominent companies within a variety of industries. For over 40 years, the company has built a reputation of innovation, extensive research and new product development in this field. The Heraeus Photovoltaics Business Unit applies its innovative technology to the field of photovoltaics, offering silver pastes for crystalline solar cells. The Heraeus SOL Series of silver pastes is specially formulated to provide higher efficiencies and wider processing windows, resulting in better yields and higher output for cell manufacturers.
