industry challenge

Contamination control
Reduce cost
Reduce time-to-market


Phase Shift technology is able to bring solutions to the microelectronics industry.

Solar cells manufacturing requires poor or medium quality Si wafer (recycled microelectronic wafers are even used as raw material).

Microelectronic devices manufacturing require wafers of a higher quality with very low contamination to insure that each device present on a wafer is working.

However, for different reasons, both PV and microelectronics need to control the crystallographic defects or impurity contaminations of their wafers.
