In certain applications, especially when it comes to solar cell applications, it’s just more practical to use GaAs reclaim wafers. Reclaim wafers are wafers that have been thoroughly cleaned and processed so it can be used again. Despite being reused, GaAs reclaim wafers offer the same performance and benefits as virgin wafers do. Using GaAs reclaim wafers will not only help you cut on costs, but it’s also a great way to lessen your industrial wastes. Here are the reasons why you should choose GaAs to reclaim wafers for solar cell applications:
The temperature coefficient refers to the measurement of a performance or efficiency of a device. GaAs reclaim wafers have a low-temperature coefficient, meaning it experiences very little efficiency loss even at higher temperatures. So, if you had a GaAs solar on the roof of your house, then it would produce more electricity and stay cooler during the day compared to other wafer materials. This results in more efficient and effective solar cells.
The wide bandgap and low-defect crystal structure of GaAs prevent leakage in weak illumination or low light. It also means that it is much better tuned to the wavelengths of fluorescent lights and LEDs. This means that even in a storage place or an office, solar power can be produced using GaAs.
GaAs generates more power for a given surface area than any other solar technology, which is why it is considered to be the highest efficiency solar material in the world. This is very crucial especially when it comes to limited surface areas, like cars, small satellites, and an aircraft.
GaAs is durable because it is naturally resistant to damage from radiation, moisture, and ultra-violet light. That is why it is being utilized in aerospace applications.
If you’re looking for a way to cut on costs without sacrificing the results of your project, then GaAs reclaim wafers are what you need. At Wafer World, we offer high-quality reclaim wafers at a reasonable price! Contact us for inquiries!
