Riber receives multi-million euro MBE system order from ZSW for research on CIGS PV

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France – which manufactures molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells – has received an order worth several million euros from the ZSW (Zentrum für Sonnenenergie- und Wasserstoff-Forschung — or Center for Solar Energy and Hydrogen Research — Baden-Württemberg) in Stuttgart, Germany.

As a research institute conducting research and development in photovoltaics, renewable energy sources, battery and fuel cell technologies, ZSW spans the entire industrial value chain, from material research, prototype development and production processes to application systems.

The automated platform that Riber will deliver in 2020 consists of two clustered 4'' MBE 412 systems. Combined with other deposition technologies, it will be used to produce copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells.

In CIGS-based thin-film photovoltaics, ZSW aims to boost the solar energy conversion efficiency above 25%, beyond the 22.6% achieved by ZSW in 2016.
