China’s Guodian orders Aixtron AIX 2600G3 IC reactor for CPV solar cell research

Deposition equipment maker Aixtron SE of Herzogenrath, Germany says that in fourth-quarter 2010 it received an order from new customer Guodian International Economics & Trade Co Ltd, China for an AIX 2600G3 IC reactor in 12x4”-wafer configuration.

The system will be delivered in second-quarter 2011 and installed and commissioned by the local AIXTRON support team in a new cleanroom at the GD Solar (JiangSu) Co Ltd, Research Group. The reactor will be dedicated to materials research for concentrator photovoltaic (CPV) solar cells.

“We look forward to the arrival of this powerful new addition to our capabilities in our research for high-efficiency CPV solar cells,” says Dr Hong Song, director of Solar Research Institute at Guodian. “Already we have been shown how straightforward it is to achieve the requisite uniformity and run-to-run productivity characteristics with the AIX 2600G3 IC reactor,” he adds. “Our technical team already has considerable experience with the Aixtron Planetary Reactor technology. They will work well together with the specialist company support staff so I am sure the system will not be long in making a strong contribution to our efforts.”
