4JET Technologies is launching a new laser scribing system for flexible
solar cells. The unique tool design enables the P1-P3 serial
integration of flexible CIGS, a-Si- and organic thin-film solar cells
on polymer- or metal substrates, thus allowing new approaches to the
The monolithic integration allows true roll to roll processing and
provides for advantages over connecting individual small cell shingles
to a module.
The 4JET design is based on a patent pending foil- and beam delivery
system that guarantees for a precise standoff distance between laser
optics and foil. At the same time, the tool allows full area
processing of the entire foil surface with up to 10 parallel laser
beams. The machine design is also suitable for processing other
flexible materials such as printed electronics and battery foils.
Besides the tool 4JET is also supplying customized scribing processes
which are developed using the in-house laser and analytics laboratory.
