Technologies, the leading manufacturer of UV-visible-NIR microscopes and
microspectrometers, is pleased to announce the QDI 2010 PV microspectrophotometer.
The QDI 2010 PV instrument is designed to measure the transmission and
reflectance of photovoltaic cells whether they be the traditional crystalline
silicon, one of the thin film variety or such components as super- and substrates.
Even protective glass and concentrator modules can be analyzed. The QDI 2010
PV also enables the user to determine thin film thickness of microscopic
sampling areas on both transparent and opaque substrates. This powerful tool
also has a host of other functions. It can be combined with CRAIC Technologies
proprietary contamination imaging capabilities to locate and identify process
contaminants. As such, the QDI 2010 PV represents a major step forward
in metrology instrumentation available to the photovoltaic industry.
"Many of our customers want to test the quality of photovoltaic devices
for rapid quality control of their products. The QDI 2010 PV microspectrophotometer
was built in response to customer requests for a powerful, flexible metrology
tool that can test a number of different aspects of many different photovoltaic
devices" says Dr. Paul Martin, President.
The complete QDI 2010 PV solution combines advanced microspectroscopy
with sophisticated software to enable the user to measure transmissivity, reflectivity,
and luminescence. It will also be able to determine the thin film thickness
by either transmission or reflectance of many types of materials and substrates.
It can also be used to measure the transmissivity and reflectivity from many
of the components used to manufacture PV cells such as concentrators. Due to
the flexibility of the CRAIC Technologies design, sampling areas can range from
over 100 microns across to less than a micron. Designed for the production environment,
it incorporates a number of easily modified metrology recipes, the ability to
measure new films and materials as well as sophisticated tools for analyzing
data. Other features such as contamination analysis are easily added to this
