Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics CSP
The research activities focus on analysis, optimization and development of industrial manufacturing processes. The research areas include cell metallization, a variety of series interconnection technologies, conventional soldering technologies as well as innovative laser and conductive adhesive interconnection processes. Besides the optimization of classical lamination technologies new encapsulation approaches like injection moulding are under development. In cooperation with the group »Module Reliability« mechanical stresses and damaging processes during single manufacturing steps as well as estimated residual stresses after the complete module assembly are estimated. The result is a systematic approach of optimized processes and technologies.
