VISTARIS

Inline Sputtering Systems with Vertical Transport Orientation

VISTARIS Sputtering Systems

The SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES VISTARIS system was developed for the requirements in the photovoltaic industry. Inline sputtering systems are important in today’s CIGS & CdTe thin-film solar cell production. The VISTARIS system was designed to enhance the efficiency of thin-film solar cells, while cutting production costs by using the state-of-the-art technologies. For photovoltaic technology, SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES develops and manufactures coating systems which can apply special layers and layer systems on different substrates.

Examples are transparent front or metallic back contact layers as well as multilayered precursors with a broad range of different materials. The main advantage of the system is that it can be used for vertical vacuum-based coating of glass substrates in solar and display industry. In the market for thin-film photovoltaic SINGULUS TECHNOLOGIES adds another production stage to its range of processing systems for the manufacture of CIGS/CIS cells.
