Riber sells Compact 21 MBE system to US solar module maker

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France, which manufactures molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells, says that it has sold a Compact 21 MBE system to a US-based photovoltaic solar module maker, for use in developing new thin-film structures for solar cells. The system is expected to be delivered in 2012.

Riber says that the Compact 21 offers high modularity and flexibility, making it possible to satisfy the most demanding specifications for the controlled development of semiconductor-based nanostructures.

The firm says that the new order further strengthens its presence in the USA, as well as the credibility of its offering in several fields associated with renewable energies.

It also says that the order confirms the relevance of the firm's business model and strategy, which is focused on:

• capitalizing on the installed base and growing sales of epitaxy equipment, spare parts and accessories, as well as the corresponding services;

• rolling out a diversification policy, involving launching a range of high-value-added equipment and services for high-growth application fields (thin-layer solar cells, organic LED lighting and displays etc).
