Abstract:
Veeco Instruments Inc. (Nasdaq: VECO) announced today that the Guangdong Redsolar Photovoltaic Tech Co., Ltd (Redsolar), a leading producer of concentrated photovoltaic (CPV) solar cells in China, has purchased multiple TurboDisc® K475TM As/P MOCVD (metal organic chemical vapor deposition) Systems. The TurboDisc K475 MOCVD tool is a fully integrated deposition system that creates high quality compound semiconductor layers for CPV devices.

Redsolar Expands Solar Cell Capacity with Veeco MOCVD Systems

Plainview, NY | Posted on November 13th, 2013

"China's appetite for highly-efficient green energy sources remains strong," said Dr Ji, General Manager of Redsolar. "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."

Guangdong Redsolar Photovoltaic Tech Co., Ltd is currently operating several TurboDisc K475 MOCVD systems that were purchased in 2012.

"We are pleased with the additional orders this quarter from Redsolar and excited about the potential for more energy efficient solar applications," said Jim Jenson, Senior Vice President and General Manager of MOCVD System Operations. "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. All those features lead to unmatched product yield and throughput for our customers."
