Phase 2 SBIR Active

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02b
Budget: 07/31/17 - 07/30/19

The proposed SBIR Phase IIB project addresses a critical need in solar cells and modules manufacturing: to inspect in real time the mechanical quality of silicon wafers and cells. The overall goal of the entire SBIR project is to transfer the in-line Activation Station (AS) technology from the laboratory level through design, manufacturing and f...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02B-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The program will develop a new quality and process control methodology and tool prototype for real-time inspection of crystalline silicon solar and ceramic solid oxide fuel cells. The Activation Station will be used in-line to reduce cost, save energy and increase yield of solar and fuel cell module production.

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 02B-2013
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The proposed SBIR Phase I program addresses a critical need in solar cell and fuel cell module manufacturing: to inspect in real time the mechanical quality of incoming wafers and finished cells. The objective of the program is to develop a new flaw inspection technology and design a laboratory prototype of an Activation Station (AS) system w...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Wafer breakage in automated solar cell production lines is a major technical problem and a barrier to further cost reductions in silicon solar module manufacturing. The fragility of silicon wafers is attributed to peripheral and bulk millimeter-length cracks. However, no commercial systems address the critical need for in-line inspection of th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Science Foundation
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I research project addresses fundamentals of the innovative experimental methodology for quick and accurate assessment of mechanical defects in solar-grade full-size (up to 210 mm) silicon (Si) wafers. The objective is to justify a commercial prototype of the Resonance Ultrasonic Vibrations (R...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2007
Budget: 01/01/07 - 12/31/07

The global photovoltaic industry is expanding rapidly (up to 40% growth in recent years) to meet growing renewable energy demands, due to dramatically increasing prices of fossil energy sources. Crystalline silicon (c-Si) is a dominant segment in the solar cell market, contributing to over 90% of the solar power module production. One of the c...
