Materials growth system
One of the key pieces of equipment in the solar lab at MIT is what Bulovic called "an integrated materials growth system for nanostructured thin films." With it, researchers can test various fabrication techniques for depositing layers of semiconductor material, including vapor deposition, sputter deposition, and printing. The speed and efficiency of the manufacturing process for thin-film solar cells is vital to keeping the costs down.
