Fraunhofer ISE orders Aixtron system for GaAs-on-Si multi-junction solar cell R&D

Aixtron AG of Aachen, Germany has received an order from the Fraunhofer Institut für Solare Energiesysteme (Fraunhofer ISE) for a 300mm Close Coupled Showerhead (CCS) CRIUS MOCVD reactor, to be used for the research and development of GaAs-based multi-junction solar cells on silicon (Si).

“Within the scope of the BMBF project "III-V-Si" we will receive Aixtron’s Close Coupled Showerhead system,” said Dr Frank Dimroth, head of the III-V-Epitaxy and Solar Cells group. He added that the new system would be used to focus on single large wafer processes on Si.
