No? Carl Zeiss has the perfect tool to help you find out: the Axio CSM 700. This light microscope enables the non-contact, highly accurate measurement of solar cells. The result is a three-dimensional, high-resolution, true-color image of the inside of the solar cell.
Why is it so important to accurately measure the photovoltaic cells? The electrical elements that convert sunlight into electricity must be manufactured with the utmost precision. The Axio CSM 700 masters the measurement of minute structures during production without damaging them. The standard resolution of down to 40 nanometers is not the only thing that is guaranteed — this microscope allows you to see what is happening inside the solar cells.
The precise measurements enable the cost-efficient production of solar cells: the microscope supports manufacturers from research and development up to production. The highly accurate, 3D image delivers vital information about the structure without delay: up to 117 pictures are taken each second. That is more than 7,000 per minute and enables manufacturers to see all the details of the complex cells.
