Intersolar 2014 - Heraeus to Exhibit at Intersolar North America 2014 Exhibition and Conference

- Heraeus PV to showcase new metallization pastes for Standard to UDLE and PERC cell designs

WEST CONSHOHOCKEN, Pa., July 1, 2014 -- The Heraeus Photovoltaics Business Unit will be attending Intersolar North America 2014 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California from July 8th through 10th, showcasing their new products for standard to ultra LDE cells and PERC cell designs during the exhibition.


"Heraeus Photovoltaics is pleased to be exhibiting at Intersolar NA for another year. The first metallization pastes for c-Si solar cells developed by Heraeus were created in North America and this region continues to be critical to our success", states Andreas Liebheit, Global Manager of the Heraeus Photovoltaics Business Unit. "At this year's show, we are proud to exhibit our SOL325 Series of pastes for PERC cell designs. This paste, along with our front-side metallization pastes, was used by the Institute for Solar Energy Research Hamelin (ISFH) to produce PERC cells with a record efficiency of 21.2%. We will also showcase our newest front-side metallization pastes for standard to ultra lightly doped emitter cells: the SOL9620 and SOL9621 Series. Our SOL9620 Series has shown excellent results on monocrystalline cells, with absolute efficiency gains up to 0.25%. Our SOL9621 Series has demonstrated greater than 0.10% absolute efficiency gains on crystalline silicon cells and possesses a flexible processing window, providing customers with very consistent cell efficiencies during production runs."

Heraeus will also be exhibiting their SOL9650 Series for n-type cell designs.
