Larger grains at lower temperatures: Possible poly-silicon production cost breakthrough?

By / February 15, 2011

A new process creates poly-silicon with crystal grains up to 150 micrometers, roughly 30 times larger than grains currently produced in the photovoltaic industry. (Credit: H. Naseem.) Researchers from the University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, say they have made a significant step forward in learning how to produce polycrystalline silicon using a process that creates significantly…
