Dalsa to Inspect Solar Cells

Photonics.com
Mar 2009
Waterloo, Ontario, Canada-based Dalsa, a manufacturer of digital imaging components for the machine vision market, has announced its entrance into the solar cell inspection market. Machine vision is used by solar cell manufacturers for product inspection, identification and tracking, and product assembly. Currently, solar cell manufacturers are under pressure to drive down costs to achieve “grid parity,” the point at which the cost of solar energy is roughly equivalent to the cost of conventional power distributed on electric grids. According to Dalsa, its experience in area-scan, line-scan and embedded processing for inspection in the flat panel display industry will be successfully applied to solar cell inspection and will result in high quality, cost-effective capabilities for the industry.


GLOSSARY
machine vision
Interpretation of an image of an object or scene through the use of optical noncontact sensing mechanisms for the purpose of obtaining information and/or controlling machines or processes.
photonics
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...
