Another successful meeting was held shortly before the start of the Christmas Holidays. On this occasion, the venue was at Aixtron SE headquarters, in Herzogenrath near Aachen in Northern Germany.




At the end of the first day of the project review meeting, the partners were given a guided tour of AIXTRON’s laboratory and were presented the recently installed MOVPE reactor.




3rd SiTaSol Project Review Meeting - 2/3 July 2018

Another successful SiTaSol Project Review Meeting hosted by Topsil in Frederikssund, Denmark.


On the 2 and 3 July 2018 the SiTaSol  consortium held their six monthly meeting in Frederikssund, Denmark, hosted by Topsil.

During this event the latest scientific progress was discussed.  We were also given the opportunity to visit the production of Float-Zone Silicon Wafers at Topsil's manufacturing site. The partners have been making good progress and reported about the installation of a new large throughput MOVPE reactor at Aixtron. We were also updated on the  improvement  in quality of low cost Si wafers and bottom solar cells, the development  of substrate lift-off processes and the development of gluing and contacting technologies for these devices.

We hope to present the first solar cell results using these new technologies by the end of 2018.

We look forward to the next review meeting taking place on 13/14 December and will be hosted by Axitron in Herzogenrath, Germany.
