Extending PVSCAN to meet the market needs for high-speed, large-area scanning

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

PVSCAN is a versatile instrument that has many applications in the PV industry, including high-speed mapping of material and cell parameters such as defect density, reflectance, and LBIC response. Recently, the PV community has been interested in acquiring this instrument for material and cell analyses and for process monitoring. This paper explores various issues that arise in developing a commercial instrument such as PVSCAN. Emphasis is on the technical details of the ability to scan fast and the detrimental effects this fast scan can have on the image quality of various material/cell parameters.
