TEL Solar is a manufacturer of production equipment for the manufacturing of thin-film silicon solar modules.TEL Solar owns the patent for the double junction thin film silicon technology from 1993. The two junctions consist of the amorphous silicon top cell and the microcrystalline silicon bottom cell. Micromorph is the brand name describing the amorphous/microcrystalline silicon tamdem cell. TEL Solar was the first to integrate boron doped zinc oxyde deposited by low pressure chemical vapour deposition as the Transparent Conductive Oxide layer, and the first to commercialize the high-efficiency Micromorph process. The majority of its customers upgraded from amorphous single junction to micromorph technology.TEL Solar is headquartered in Switzerland and has about 650 employees. The installed production capacity at its customer sites cumulates to 1 Giga Watt . TEL Solar maintains sales and service centers in the USA, Europe, China, Taiwan, Korea, Singapore and Japan.
