IMEC lands new partners for solar cell programme


Interuniversity Microelectronics Centre (IMEC) has announced that it has established new partnerships with solar cell material and equipment suppliers including MEMC Electronic Materials Inc., Leybold Optics Dresden GmbH, Roth & Rau AG, and Mallinckrodt Baker B.V., in its wafer-based silicon photovoltaics industrial affiliation programme.

As part of this multi-partner R&D programme, a solar cell pilot line will be set up with backing from the Flemish government. This will allow IMEC’s partners to conduct solar cell process development research in a semi-industrial environment, smoothing the path for the results of the research to be transferred directly to industrial production lines.
