Redsolar buys multiple Veeco K475 MOCVD systems

Epitaxial deposition and process equipment maker Veeco Instruments Inc of Plainview, NY, USA says that China-based concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar cell maker Guangdong Redsolar Photovoltaic Tech Co Ltd has purchased multiple TurboDisc K475 As/P metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) systems (fully integrated deposition tools that create compound semiconductor layers for CPV devices). Redsolar is already operates several TurboDisc K475 MOCVD systems that were purchased in 2012.

“China’s appetite for highly efficient green energy sources remains strong,” says Redsolar’s general manager Dr Ji. “Veeco’s proven, best-in-class MOCVD systems reduce the production costs of CPV solar cells and allow us to easily ramp production in a modular way with supreme reliability at the lowest cost of ownership,” he adds.

“The K475 is the perfect choice for concentrated solar cells because our critical integrated reactor design produces excellent uniformity and repeatability with the highest uptime between maintenance,” reckons Jim Jenson, senior VP & general manager of Veeco’s MOCVD System Operations. “All those features lead to unmatched product yield and throughput.”

The TurboDisc K475 is equipped to maximize uptime and throughput by leveraging Veeco’s technology (as the leader in the GaN LED market) and integration of critical reactor design elements. Elements include a tunable FlowFlange, advanced RealTemp 200 temperature control and ultimate TurboDisc high-velocity laminar flow, along with an integrated system load-lock that remains under constant vacuum to minimize downtime between runs.
