We remind our customers that multi-junction cells contain III-V semiconductor materials which can be harmful in case of wrong handling. Such substances as arsenic (As) and phosphorus (P) are used in different alloys and the contained components are to be handled with care, always using appropriate hand protection.
Our CPV solar cells are delivered in PE-packs or on adhesive tape hold from an expansion ring. In addition, AZUR SPACE offers traceability of each individual cell in case of undiced wafer or diced wafer on adhesive tape. Along with the shipment, our customers receive a quality report including all results of our internal quality procedures.
We strongly recommend to process and store the solar cells under clean room conditions at defined room temperature and humidity. AZUR SPACE ships the cells in sealed packages, protected from the outer atmosphere.
Once in operation, our standard solar cells should not overcome a maximum operation temperature of 120°C. Furthermore, each solar cell has to be protected by a bypass diode.
