Ultra-Thin Silicon for Increased Solar Efficiency

Thin silicon wafers used in solar panels have a few advantages over the standard 160 μm wafers.

  1. The thinner wafers allow more light to be absorbed, so less silicon is needed to make the same amount of electricity.
  2. The thinner wafers are easier to make, so they cost less and take less time to make.
  3. The thinner wafers are cheaper, so the electricity they make is cheaper.

50 μm wafers substrates could potentially reduce the cost of fabricating solar panels  capex by 48%, module cost by 28%, and LCOE by 24%.

New Process to Fabricate Ultra-Thin Silicon Wafers

UniversityWafer, Inc. and our partners have developed a new process for producing ultra-thin silicon wafers that can be processed with standard semiconductor equipment on flexible substrates. To provide a more flexible substrate for the production of ultra-thin semiconductors, we have started to produce thicker silicon rings to support ultrasonic wafers. We develop new processes for the production of thin-ring silicon with a thickness of less than 1 micrometer (micrometer) and a diameter of only 1 mm.

We have a large Selection of Thin Silicon Wafers

Below are just some of the thickness wafers that we have in stock:

  • 5 micron
  • 10 micron
  • 20-25 micron
  • 50 micron
  • 75 micron
  • 100 micron

Other wafer thicknesses are available.

Thin Silicon Increases Solar Panel Efficiency

Climate change (formally referred to as global warming) is the greatest problem earth faces today. Scientists are urgently  researching how to transition to a carbon-neutral energy system using the sun’s solar rays. Using current technologies, scientists have proven that the thinner the solar panel the greater the overall efficiency of production and solar capture.   UniversityWafer, Inc. has assisted scientists in their quest for thin-silicon used to fabricate solar modules.
