Intersolar North America 2012


SANTA CLARA, Calif.--Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) announced today that the company will participate in Intersolar North America in San Francisco. Intevac will showcase their revolutionary, high value, low-cost solutions for the solar industry.

Intevac will feature its LEAN SOLAR™ processing platform that offers the benefits of high productivity and precise film property control in a small footprint. The LEAN SOLARTM platform, and its suite of applications, enables the production of high efficiency crystalline-silicon cells. The compact ENERGi™ implant product application offers higher cell efficiency through precise boron and phosphorous doping, and is extendible to advanced solar cell technologies. The NanoTexture™ etch product application reduces surface reflectance, and the resulting uniform black surface improves the aesthetic appeal of multi and quasi-mono wafers. Intevac will also present a paper titled "Engineering Advanced Solar Cells with High Throughput Ion Implantation" at the annual SEMICON West Junction Technology Seminar on Thursday, July 12th.

Intevac Booth #5870 will be located in Moscone Center, North Hall. Booth hours are Tuesday and Wednesday, July 10th and 11th from 10 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., and Thursday, July 12th from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Featured Product

WS510 Secondary Standard

WS510 Secondary Standard

In the monitoring of large photovoltaic (Utility Scale), in assessing potential sites (Solar-assessment), or in up and coming electricity cost saving initiatives projects (Commercial & Industrial), the WS510 now provides the market a secondary standard pyranometer, ultrasonic wind speed, ultrasonic wind direction, temperature, pressure and humidity all in a single unit.. This sensor meets the high demands of the world meteorological organization (WMO) through the active valving at air temperature measurement and the inertia- and maintenance-free measurement of wind speed and wind direction on the ultrasonic principle. Equipped with a Kipp & Zonen pyranometer of the secondary standards, the WS510-UMB Compact weather sensor from Lufft unites the precision of a variety of meteorological individual sensors in a single all-in-one device, for the first time.
