PV Cz Silicon Semi-annual Report
Manufacturing Technology Improvements April 1994 - October 1994
Siemens Solar Industries (SSI) began a three-year, three-phase cost shared contract
in March 1992 to demonstrate significant cost reductions and improvements in
manufacturing technology. The work has focused on near-term projects for
implementation in the SSI Czochralski (Cz) manufacturing facility in Camarillo,
The work has been undertaken to increase the commercial viability and volume of
photovoltaic manufacturing by evaluating the most significant cost categories and then
lowering the cost of each item through experimentation, materials refinement, and
better industrial engineering.
The final phase of the program has concentrated in the areas of crystal growth, wafer
technology and environmental, safety and health issues.
Significant contributions have been made by the key personnel involved in the
program. They include Kim Mitchell, in the crystal growth and wafer areas, and
Sergio Vasquez in the environmental, safety and health area.
Here’s what’s next.
