1366 Technologies Direct Wafer Product Hits Performance Record

Massachusetts-based 1366 Technologies has announced a series of new performance records for its kerfless, drop-in 156mm multi-crystalline wafers, including a 19.1% result on an industrial line of Hanwha Q CELLS. The kerfless solar silicon production method eliminates a costly part of the solar silicon wafering process, namely, the wasted silicon saw dust (kerf) that … [continued]

Thinning Solar Silicon Discs

Originally published on Solar Love. Carrying out applied research throughout the entire process chain of wafer-based silicon solar module production, Fraunhofer CSP is currently working on improving the quality of wafer-thin silicon discs and in producing them as cheaply as possible.
