LayTec’s new InspiRe in-situ tool used for monitoring perovskite formation

Germany-based in-situ metrology system maker LayTec has announced that its new InspiRe system applies high-speed in-situ reflectance measurements for monitoring perovskite thin-film formations during spin-coating and subsequent annealing.

In collaboration with professor Norbert Nickel’s group at HZB, LayTec designed the InspiRe in-situ metrology system, which was applied to monitor both spin-coating and annealing. Gathering data at a time resolution on the millisecond scale allows resolving of the kinetics and phase formations during film formation.

Interview with Greatcell Solar Materials' GM Yanek Hebting

In December 2018, Greatcell Solar declared bankruptcy, a sad ending to a once promising perovskite venture. However, prior to this bankruptcy (in September 2018), the Production Division of Greatcell Solar was sold off, in a new business called Greatcell Solar Materials (GSM).
