|20110206485||CONVEYOR ASSEMBLY AND METHOD FOR CONVEYING A SUBSTRATE CARRIER - A conveyor assembly suitable for use in a substrate processing system includes: at least one substrate carrier having a substrate-carrying surface configured to support at least one substrate; a processing track; a return track; a drive system configured to drive the substrate carrier along the processing track and the return track; and at least one swivel unit configured to pivot the substrate carrier around a substantially horizontal axis from a first orientation into a second orientation, and/or vice versa. Also provided is a method for conveying a substrate carrier including: providing a substrate carrier; positioning the substrate carrier in a first orientation; conveying the substrate carrier along a first track; and rotating the substrate carrier around a substantially horizontal axis into a second orientation.||08-25-2011|
|20110185930||TRANSPORT TABLE AND METHOD FOR THE USE THEREOF - A transport table, comprising a transport web; an unwinding roller for unwinding the transport web therefrom; a first return element; a second return element; a winding roller for winding thereon the unwound transport web; a first frame with which the first and the second return element are connected; and a second frame with which the unwinding roller and the winding roller are rotatably connected, wherein the unwinding roller, the winding roller and the return elements together are designed for stretching the transport web such that between the first and the second return element a surface of the transport web is available as transport surface, and wherein the second frame is movable along a path substantially parallel to said transport surface with respect to the first frame. The invention also discloses a method for the use of the transport table.||08-04-2011|
|20110079506||CASCADE SOURCE AND A METHOD FOR CONTROLLING THE CASCADE SOURCE - A cascade source provided with a cathode housing, a number of cascade plates insulated from each other and stacked on top of each other which together bound at least one plasma channel, and an anode plate provided with an outflow opening connecting to the plasma channel, wherein one cathode is provided per plasma channel, which cathode comprises an electrode which is adjustable relative to the cathode housing in the direction of the plasma channel, wherein the clamping provision is preferably of the collet chuck type. Also described is method for controlling the cascade source in use.||04-07-2011|
|20100244068||Method For Applying A Thin-Film Encapsulation Layer Assembly To An Organic Device, And An Organic Device Provided With A Thin-Film Encapsulation Layer Assembly Preferably Applied With Such A Method - A method for applying a thin-film encapsulation layer assembly to an organic device, which comprises a substrate which is provided with an active stack and is then provided with the thin-film encapsulation layer assembly for screening the active stack substantially from oxygen and moisture, wherein the thin-film encapsulation layer assembly is formed by applying at least one organic and at least one inorganic layer applied with PECVD or reactive sputtering, onto the active stack, wherein after application of a first organic layer a metal layer is applied to the first organic layer before an inorganic layer is applied thereto utilizing PECVD or reactive sputtering, wherein the metal layer is applied utilizing a deposition technique that causes relatively little radiation, wherein the metal layer protects the organic layer against radiation upon a subsequent PECVD or reactive sputtering process step for applying an inorganic layer. The invention also relates to an organic device manufactured with such a method.||09-30-2010|
|20100236618||METHOD FOR MANUFACTURING A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL AND A PHOTOVOLTAIC CELL OBTAINED WITH SUCH A METHOD - A method for manufacturing a photovoltaic cell, such as a solar cell is disclosed. The method includes: providing a silicon substrate; applying to a side of the silicon substrate, a first layer of a metal with a relatively high optical reflectance, such as a layer of silver; applying to the first layer, a second layer of a metal with a relatively high electrical conductivity coefficient, such as a layer of aluminum or an Al alloy; and then firing the substrate having the first and second layers in order to obtain an alloy of the metals of the first and second layers and the silicon, wherein the alloy formed comprises a maximum amount of metal dissolved in the silicon in amounts up to the eutectic point of the alloy. In one implementation, the alloy is substantially an n-type Si—Al—Ag alloy. Thus, an improved Back Surface Field is formed in the substrate. The invention further relates to a photo voltaic cell obtained with the aid of such method.||09-23-2010|
