Line laser

Share this on social media:

Limo has introduced a range of laser line generators suitable for use in solar cell production. These generators support processing, organising and refining surfaces. There are already line lasers with short lines (450W, 12 times 0.1 square millimetre) serving as inexpensive standard solutions in the thermal processing of silicon, for example. The generators structuring AMOLED (active matrix organic light emitting diode) displays with 80mm long lines supply several kilowatts of power.

This technology is designed to add to the changing energy policy: A line laser (40W of power, 808nm wavelength and 165mm line length) is able to scrutinise solar cells using so-called photoluminescence spectroscopy.
