PP-TOFMS may be used for the leading silicon photovoltaics technology for measuring dopant profiles and detecting the presence of impurities. One-click semi-quantification may be obtained or accurate quantification with calibration curve.



Thin film CdTe photovoltaic devices and reference layers deposited on glass substrates by the atmospheric pressure metalorganic vapour deposition (AP-MOCVD) at CSER (UK) are characterized for their arsenic (As) dopant levels in CdTe films PP-TOFMS. Rapid, low vacuum : PP-TOFMS will be the adequate tool for controlling the large scale production of CdTe PV materials.
