Amtech Places Ion Implant System At ECN In The Netherlands

News

Amtech Systems has signed a contract with ECN, a world leader in solar research, to cooperate on the development of low cost, high efficiency cell technologies utilizing our IonSolar system (an ion implant tool). The IonSolar system was developed and manufactured by Kingstone Semiconductor, a majority-owned subsidiary of Amtech. The IonSolar system, together with existing Tempress Systems' equipment already installed at ECN, will be used for these research and development activities.

Fokko Pentinga, Chief Executive Officer of Amtech, commented, "This cooperation with ECN is another indication of the potential  of Kingstone's IonSolar system for future cost effective cell technologies and demonstrates our investment in research and development, which is delivering highly relevant technologies to the market. We are very proud that our long standing partnership with ECN, and their world-leading solar development efforts on cost effective solar cell and module technology, is now expanded to include our ion implant technology. ECN has an excellent track record on commercialization of their R&D efforts.  In the technology roadmap of Tempress Systems and Kingstone Semiconductor, the integration of our ion implant technology and our diffusion and PECVD deposition technology is critical to enable the next generation of low cost, high efficient solar cells."
