Solar Cell Manufacturing Processes Research Laboratory


experimental research of technological manufacturing processes of solar cells. Implementing RTD activities non-contact laser techniques are used for formation of surface structures and development of high-efficiency solar cells of new structure. The laboratory staff is working on improvement of available solar cells production technological processes as well as on development of new processes with a focus on new laser processes. From the scientific and industrial viewpoint, laboratory using set of pulse power lasers – pulse duration from nanoseconds to femtoseconds – provides applied research and services ranging from formation of nanostructured surfaces to laser ablation of insulating layers and cutting wafers and solar cells.


  • Ablation and removal of dielectric layers
  • Cutting of silicon wafers and cells
  • formation of grooves and holes in wafers and cells
  • Laser diffusion
  • Edge isolation
  • Contact formation
  • Surface texturing
  • Diffusion processes
