SCHMID Group reports the sale of 8 APCVD (Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapor Deposition) systems to three well-known Asian manufacturers. Dr. Christian Buchner, Vice President and Head of Business Unit PV at the SCHMID Group, evaluates the current sales as evidence of the company's right product strategy: "The current contracts show the great popularity of our technology and should be interpreted as a clear sign of stimulation of the PV industry. In future there will be more and more technology upgrades in the direction of high-efficiency cells, in particular concepts with maximum energy yield such as bifacial solar cells."

The SCHMID APCVD tool is designed specifically for new processes and high volume production at atmospheric pressure using chemical vapor deposition. This state-of-the-art, high-throughput system is the most effective source for applying many of the layers needed in modern high-efficiency solar cells.

Distinctly unlike other furnaces, the APCVD is an energy efficient precision thermal processing system which provides unequaled performance at lowest cost of ownership.

Multiple injection heads allow for highly uniform films to be deposited in a single system. Configuration for doped glasses like BSG and PSG as well as capping and passivation layers like SiO2 can be realized in one process step. The following processes like co-diffusion can be realized in a unique simple way.

For more than 10 years the SCHMID APCVD systems have already been used in industry with great success and high acceptance, and are continuously improved in the SCHMID owned technology centers and adapted to future trends - such as new types of cell concepts.
