Reports from National Changhua University of Education Add New Data to Findings in Mechanical Engineering (Thermal Effect on a CIGS Thin-Film Solar Cell P2 Layer by Using a UV Laser)
By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Energy Weekly News -- Investigators publish new report on Mechanical Engineering. According to news originating from Changhua, Taiwan, by VerticalNews correspondents, research stated, "This study used ANSYS simulation software for analyzing an ultraviolet (UV) (355 nm) laser processing system. The laser apparatus was used in a stainless steel CIGS solar cell P2 layer for simulation analysis."
Our news journalists obtained a quote from the research from the National Changhua University of Education, "CIGS films process order according to SiO2 layer, molybdenum electrode, CIGS absorbed layer, CdS buffered layer, i-ZnO penetrate light layer, TCO front electrode, MgF resist reflected materials, and electrode materials. The simulation and experimental results were compared to obtain a laser-delineated P2 laser with a low melting and vaporization temperature. According to the simulation results, the laser function time was 135 mu s, the UV laser was 0.5 W, and the P2 layer thin films were removed. The experimental results indicated that the electrode pattern of the experiment was similar to that of the simulation result, and the laser process did not damage the base plate."
According to the news editors, the research concluded: "The analysis results confirm that the laser apparatus is effective when applied to a stainless steel CIGS solar cell P2 layer."
