LID Scope

Share this on social media:

LayTec has launched LID Scope - a system for the simulation and monitoring of LID. LID Scope is a table-top system that helps to quantify the expected performance loss of any solar cell directly at the line or in the lab. The tool performs accelerated or real-life degradation tests automatically. It delivers highly reproducible results and a permanent monitoring of Voc changes by integrated metrology. These features make the tool an inevitable part of quality control and production optimisation in PV industry.

LID Scope degrades cells in a well-controlled procedure with electrical current and high temperatures by applying novel physical models developed by Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics (CSP) in Germany. Cells can be degraded in a repeatable way, which means that LID Scope offers identical LID performance control from line to line and from lab to lab.
