Alpha's Narahari Pujari to Present at 2017 Metallization and Interconnection Workshop


Reading time ( words)

Alpha Assembly Solutions is participating in the upcoming Metallization and Interconnection Workshop taking place October 23–24 in Kostanz, Germany, where global experts will discuss status, trends and new product roadmaps for crystalline silicon (cSi) solar cells.

Narahari Pujari, R&D Manager for Alpha Assembly Solutions, part of the MacDermid Performance Solutions group of businesses, will present a technical paper titled "Non-Eutectic Low Melting Temperature Alloys for Standard cSi Interconnection", which focuses on the expected changes in worldwide regulations that will require lead-bearing solders be replaced with less toxic alternatives.

"Lead-based solders have been used predominantly in PV applications due to their sufficiently low melting points and ability to make good, reliable solder joints between busbars and PV ribbon," says Pujari. "The critical components to consider for transitioning to lead-free solders are cost-efficiency and repeatable high performance, which are necessary to mirror the properties of lead-based solders currently in use."

Pujari's presentation will report on new non-eutectic alloys for tinning PV ribbon and cSi interconnection that were tested and benchmarked against standard tin-lead alloys for thermal and mechanical properties as well as functional performance.
