Silicon Growth Laboratory: This laboratory includes state of the art tools to produce both multi and monolike silicon GEN 2 ingots and 156x156mm2 silicon wafers. This laboratory also consists of various techniques to characterize the structural and electrical properties of ingots and wafers including Infrared (IR) spectroscopy, microwave photoconductivity decay (microPCD) measurements, deep level transient spectroscopy (DLTS), and surface photovoltage (SPV) measurements capabilities.
Thin Film Growth Laboratory: Various physical and chemical vapor deposition systems along with wet chemical synthesis are scattered around thin film growth laboratory, clean room facilities, chemical synthesis laboratory and nanomaterials laboratory. The state-of-the-art two growth chamber molecular beam epitaxy systems in the thin film laboratory is dedicated for the development of kerstite thin film materials for photovoltaic applications and the growth of high quality oxide materials for various fundamental science investigations.
The Perovskite Photovoltaics (PV) Laboratory: is designated for the making of Photovoltaic Perovskite based Solar Cells in our Grand Challenge program. This lab has spin coating and electrochemical and other processing equipment as well as glove boxes for the assembling of the PV cells. Some of the initial testing will be performed in this lab that should aim to optimize the performance of the cell.
