Riber wins selenium evaporator order for Singulus CIGS PV systems

Riber S.A. of Bezons, France, which manufactures molecular beam epitaxy (MBE) systems as well as evaporation sources and effusion cells, has signed a contract worth more than a million Euros with Singulus Technologies AG of Kahl am Main, Germany, which makes production equipment for the Optical Disc and Solar sectors.

Riber will provide Singulus with its Jet 40K Selenium, which is a linear evaporator able to evaporate material alongside a surface. Selenium is a key element for making copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) thin-film solar cells. CIGS thin films are made using large roll-to-roll or in-line machines that deposit material onto glass or substrate film moving at high speed above the evaporators.

The Jet 40K Selenium evaporators will be installed on the several Singulus evaporation machines that will equip a new plant in China that is targeted to produce hundreds of MW of CIGS solar panel per year. Under the contract, Riber will deliver evaporators during first-half 2017.

The new contract follows Jet 40K Selenium evaporators being used for several years in Germany and the USA to produce CIGS thin-films, providing high quality and high thickness uniformity across large area of substrate film at high throughput.
