ACAP's ANU node brings new, powerful capabilities to its solar research labs with the installation of the Light Conversion Pharos PH2-SP-10W-1mJ at the Canberra campus with thanks to funding from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.
The Pharos allows for damage-free laser ablation of thin, optically transparent films, where high-efficiency silicon solar cells usually require some form of structuring of passivation films. Its wide tuneable range in pulse duration, and three wavelengths offer a broad process optimisation window, and also allows for the emulation of many industrial laser systems. Explore its full capabilities and specs here.
