Delmic CL solutions offers a range of powerful and user-friendly cathodoluminescence detectors, which can help you learn more about both bulk and nanostructured materials.
Photovoltaics will play a critical role in the global energy transition to a fully renewable energy supply. To reach this goal, in-depth characterization and understanding of photovoltaic materials is critical. Cathodoluminescence (CL) imaging can play an important role in this endeavor. The technique can be employed to image local defects and band structure of photovoltaic (PV) semiconductor materials on small length scales. It is a contactless nanoscale imaging method for studying bulk, thin-film, and micro/nanostructured PV materials. CL is particularly powerful for studying second-generation thin-film PV such as CdTe, CIGS, GaAs as well as novel third-generation materials such as Perovskites, CZTS, III/V nanowires and more.
