IBS will invest into the development of plasma-immersion ion implant processes and equipment tailored for edge re-passivation (in T3.2) and for patterned doping of high-temperature passivated contacts (in T3.4). IBS
is experienced with the development of plasma immersion ion implantation processes and equipment for PV application (see list of publications). In addition, IBS is also experienced with collaborative R&D projects will multiple partners (see list of previous projects and activities). Finally, IBS has developed unique and patented know-how regarding plasma immersion ion implantation processes and tool design.
