Solar Cells / Photovoltaics

Solar cells / photovoltaics research
  • Impedance spectroscopy – The Solartron XM PhotoEchem is specifically optimised for studying solar cells
  • Impedance tests to characterise solar cell performance, testing carrier concentrations, mobilities, trap states etc for high frequency materials – Solartron Analytical
  • High performance impedance / capacitance measurement for photovoltaic applications, and fast DC measurement techniques including pulse, smooth ramp, staircase and arbitrary waveforms, to be fully characterise photovoltaic materials in time and frequency domain – Solartron Modulab XM MTS (Materials Test System)
  • IPCE / Quantum Efficiency measurement – with the Solartron Modulab XM PhotoEchem + IPCE module
  • Characterising photovoltaics and solar cells with Raman SpectroscopyArticleRenishaw InVia
  • RoHS (Restriction of the Use of Hazardous Substances) – Map elements and detect traces of toxic substances using micro-XRF –
  • Elemental analysis of thin film solar cells, in both air and vacuums, using micro-XRF. Suitable for in-line analysis during manufacturing and for final product testing – Bruker M4 TornadoApplication Note
