|World Efficiency Record for CPV Cells Achieved on Veeco MBE System|
Solar Junction, a developer of high efficiency multi-junction solar
energy cells for the concentrating photovoltaics (CPV) market, reported
last October that the power conversion efficiency of their CPV cells was
measured at an unprecedented 44 percent at 947 suns, as verified by the
The GEN200 MBE cluster-tool design provides the material source and wafer configuration flexibility for R&D or for multi-wafer production applications. The flexibility of the cluster tool design enables the GEN200 system to deliver higher throughput and lower cost per wafer, in a footprint up to 60% smaller than comparable MBE systems. It can support dual growth modules, allowing facilities to either greatly increase production or grow different materials within a single, integrated system.
