BTU�s integrated In-line Diffusion System combines its proven TFQ series quartz-lined conveyor belt diffusion furnace with new phosphorous doping technology, featuring an ultrasonic direct spray phosphorous doper that processes up to 1,500 wafers per hour. BTU�s quartz lined furnaces have been optimized for phosphorus diffusion and in-line processing of solar cells.
Use of an in-line diffusion system improves productivity for solar cell manufacturers, with reduced wafer handling and greater throughput than traditional batch processing. Reduced handling translates into lower breakage rates and improved yield. Typical processing times are only 20-25 minutes.
