MUEGGE - Photovoltaic

Photovoltaic cells convert solar light photons into electricity. Photovoltaic solar cells fulfill two functions: photogeneration of charge carriers (electrons and holes) in a light-absorbing material, and separation of the charge carriers to a conductive contact that will transmit the electricity. Solar cells are commonly used in remote locations where cost-effective access to local power grids are not possible.

The microwave systems produced by MUEGGE are used, among many other applications, to generate plasma for film deposition processes on photovoltaic cells.
