Intevac To Participate In The 27Th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference And Exhibition

Intevac, Inc. (Nasdaq:IVAC) announced today that the company will participate in the 27th EU PVSEC, in Frankfurt, Germany. Intevac will showcase their revolutionary high-value, low- cost solutions for the solar industry.

Intevac will feature its LEAN SOLAR processing platform that offers the benefits of high productivity and precise film property control in a small footprint. The LEAN SOLAR TM platform, and its applications, enables the production of high efficiency crystalline-silicon cells. The compact ENERG i implant product offers higher cell efficiency through precise phosphorous and boron doping, and is extendible to advanced solar cell technologies. The NanoTexture etch product reduces surface reflectance, and the resulting uniform black surface improves the aesthetic appeal of multi-crystalline cells. Intevac will also present a talk entitled “ Increase Cell Efficiency and Lower Cost Watt with Enabling Solar Solutions” on Tuesday, September 25 th at 2:45 p.m. in the Exhibition Forum.

Intevac will take part in the Visual Presentation Program and will present two Ion Implantation papers on Wednesday, September 26 th from 1:30 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. in the Exhibition Forum at the Messe.

Intevac Booth E3 will be located in Hall 3 at the Messe Frankfurt and Congress Center, Frankfurt, Germany, September 25 th through September 28 th. Hours are Tuesday through Thursday, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Friday, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.


The European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition is the leading science-to-science, business-to-business and science-to-industry forum for the global PV solar energy sector. The show expects over 700 exhibitors and more than 35,000 trade visitors from 100 countries in the Messe Frankfurt and Congress Center from September 24 th through 28 th.
