Soitec’s Altatech subsidiary partners with HBZ for solar research, installs new CVD system

Altatech, a CVD/equipment subsidiary of SOI wafer leader Soitec, announced a new collaborative partnership to research and develop materials for the next generation of high-efficiency solar cells. Joining forces with Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie (HZB), a member of the Helmholtz Association of German Research Centres, Altatech will be working on new classes of materials and innovative device structures for photovoltaic and photocatalysis applications. Altatech will install a new single-substrate multi-chamber solution (an AltaCVD system) at HZB’s newly constructed Energy Materials In-situ Laboratory (EMIL) at the synchrotron light source BESSY II facility in Berlin.
