Precise LID Test for PERC Cells

PERC cells may lose performance due to LID. The LID Scope test device, developed by Fraunhofer CSP, determines the extent to which they are affected.

 

Advantages for Quality Control

Raman spectroscopy is intended to enable the analysis of impurities of silicon wafers in a non-destructive and non-contact manner.
