The Midsummer Concept
Midsummer combines advanced CIGS research with experience from industrial mass manufacturing to provide cost effective turnkey solar cell production solutions. The Midsummer concept uses 6” stainless steel substrates to produce solar cells that look like mono crystalline Silicon cells. The Midsummer cells have all the benefi ts of CIGS but without being limited to large glass panels. The cells can be used as replacement for Silicon cells in conventional modules, or they can be used in new innovative flexible applications.
Midsummer AB is a Swedish privately owned company founded in 2004. The founders and key employees have long industrial experience from the optical disc and FPD photo mask industry. Midsummer has some of the most experienced CIGS researchers in Scandinavia leading our R&D work.
Midsummer’s CIGS process is all developed in house. The DUO sputtering tool is designed and manufactured by Midsummer. We guarantee the performance of both process and hardware. With our concept of using the same tool for R&D as for production, our customers can directly transfer the latest process improvements and cost saving measures to ensure a future proof investment.
