Semiconductor and solar cell technology developer BluGlass (ASX:BLG) has revealed it has completed the design and installation of a manufacturing tool that serves as a major technology milestone for the company.
BluGlass has successfully implemented a Remote Plasma Chemical Vapour Deposition (RPCVD) tool that seeks to accelerate the time to commercialisation for its Nitride deposition chip manufacturing technology.
The construction of the tool was funded through part of the High Efficiency Thin Film Solar Cell Project's $4.95 million Climate Ready Grant.
The new tool gives BluGlass an extra 50% Nitride deposition capacity at its Silverwater factory, the company said.
