Wettenberg (euro adhoc) - (Wettenberg, July 4, 2011) - PVA TePla Group, a
leading manufacturer of silicon crystallization systems and of vacuum and
high-temperature systems, has developed the "CGS Lab", a technologically
innovative crystal-growing system on a laboratory scale. The CGS Lab, built in
the context of the "Spitzencluster" competition sponsored by the German Federal
Ministry of Education and Research, is designed to manufacture monocrystalline
ingots using the Czochralski method. In contrast to its larger counterparts,
which are already in use in the semiconductor and photovoltaic industries, this
system is particularly attractive both for industrial application in the solar,
semiconductor and optical industries and for basic research at institutes and
universities as a result of its smaller scale. 

The CGS Lab is particularly suitable for fast and efficient material
characterization for receiving and pre-delivery inspections and standardization,
e.g. for polysilicon manufacturers and photovoltaic companies, but also for
optimization of solar cell material (Si, Ge), concentrator photovoltaics and
infrared optics.

The advantages of the system are its low space requirement and short pro¬cess
times with low staff, material, media and energy utilization levels, which
enable fast, cost-efficient results. These are supplemented by low maintenance
requirements, ease of use and full process automation. Control of all parameters
is possible at any time via an integrated, graphical user interface.
