GfE Coating Materials – A Major Supplier of Sputtering Targets to the PV Industry
NURNBERG, Germany, June 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ — GfE is a world-wide provider of sputter targets for thin film photovoltaic cell manufacturing. We provide targets of all shapes and sizes. GfE is the largest supplier of alumina doped zinc oxide (AZOY) as well as i-ZnO planar and rotatable targets for PV transparent conductive oxide (TCO) thin films in the world. Continuous improvement of standard products as well as research and development of new products is the key competency of GfE. It is this capability that allows us to support the industry in coping with increasing requirements while at the same time working to reduce production costs. GfE covers a wide range of coating materials used in CIGS, a-Si, CdTe and wafer based cells, and is now one of the leading suppliers worldwide with sales offices in the US and China.
GfE has developed unique Freiloc(Â®) bonding methods for rotatable targets. The Freiloc(Â®) 4 series allows increased sputtering power to be used with rotatables compared to classic Indium bonding. GfE assures 18 kw/meter as a power level for deposition for this bonding method. Materials offered for thin film PV sputtering targets include among others: various levels of alumina doped zinc oxide (AZOY), i-ZnO, ZnO/Ga2O3, ZnO/MgO, TiOx, Cr, Mo, Ag, Al, Si pure and NiCr. We are very pleased to once again be exhibiting at Intersolar North America this year. Come see us at booth L306 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, July 12 – 14, 2011.
