Sophisticated functional printing applications are used in the manufacturing of numerous electronic devices. In our research work on the optimization of silicon solar cell manufacturing processes, we develop and optimize printing processes with which ultra-fine line contacts with good conductivity can be produced on structured silicon surfaces. Our expertise is applicable for other applications such as circuit boards, fuel cells, batteries, sensors and other electronic devices. Thus, we can support material and device manufacturers in the selection of suitable printing technologies, the development of functional materials or innovative processes. We offer a wide range of characterization methods covering all relevant aspects from material and surface characterization to in-depth analysis of electrical, optical and functional properties.
