Air Products brings onstream new hydrogen selenide plant for CIGS PV market

Air Products of Lehigh Valley, PA, USA has brought onstream an expansion of its high-purity hydrogen selenide (H2Se) production capabilities at its electronic specialty materials manufacturing facility in Hometown, PA. The new capacity was added to serve the growing copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film photovoltaic (PV) solar cell manufacturing market.

“Air Products has a long history of supplying hydrogen selenide,” says Joe Stockunas, global business director Electronic Materials. The firm can deliver H2Se to semiconductor and photovoltaic customers at more than 99.99% purity levels.

Air Products notes that industry observers believe CIGS technology holds much promise going forward, based on the significant advances in efficiency improvement and high-volume manufacturing that producers have already made.
