  • g2T Beam Profiling, Scanning System
Jan 2010
LIMO Lissotschenko Mikrooptik GmbHRequest Info
DORTMUND, Germany, Jan. 4, 2010 – LIMO Lissotschenko Mikrooptik GmbH has introduced the g2T beam profiler and scanning system, a two-in-one system that combines two optical concepts: the transformation of Gaussian beams into homogeneous top-hat profiles and a scan method involving galvo mirrors and a specifically designed f-Theta objective lens.

LIMO_g2T-scansystem.jpgIt was constructed for laser direct materials structuring with single-mode lasers, especially at 532 nm and in particular for solar cell manufacturing. The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems has applied this technology and has demonstrated ablation of thin films on the basis of a 75-nm SiN layer on Si and achieved a precise result without causing any damage to deeper layers.

In comparison to Gaussian beams, the throughput can be increased by the use of g2T profiles because of smaller pulse-to-pulse spatial overlaps.

Standard spot sizes of 50 × 50 µm2 can structure high-precision grooves with smooth edges in contrast to the typical sawtooth-patterns caused by Gaussian beams. The process window is enhanced and thermal damages are reduced by the homogeneous profile. With a scan field size of 155 × 155 mm², standard solar cells can be structured cost-effectively in one production run and with high throughput.

beam profiler
A device that measures the spatial distribution of energy perpendicular to the propagation path of a radiant beam. An energy or power meter is typically used to monitor the amount of light passing through a slit, pinhole or aperture that is scanned across the beam path.
The technology of generating and harnessing light and other forms of radiant energy whose quantum unit is the photon. The science includes light emission, transmission, deflection, amplification and detection by optical components and instruments, lasers and other light sources, fiber optics, electro-optical instrumentation, related hardware and electronics, and sophisticated systems. The range of applications of photonics extends from energy generation to detection to communications and...
