Did you know there can be 5x more air pollution inside your house than outside of it? Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. Understanding and controlling common pollutants indoors can help reduce risk of indoor health concerns. BASF offers the widest portfolio of adsorbent technologies for a broad spectrum of applications in industries such as refining, petrochemical, chemical, and gas processing.

Optical Pyrometers for the Solar Industry

At BASF, we believe chemistry will play an important role in the future of solar technology, enabling the sun’s energy to make a sustainable contribution towards a low carbon society. BASF has solutions that can benefit silicon wafer and thin film technologies, as well as solar energy products such as panels and cells.

Silicon Wafer Production

EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors provide the accuracy and precision necessary for silicon wafer production. EXACTUS® sensors enhance control of critical processes; whether in single crystal ingot pulling, polycrystalline casting, or ribbon pulling; improving quality and yield.

Solar Cell Production

BASF’s advanced EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors control critical deposition and doping processes in the manufacturing of solar cells. Exactus’s capability to measure low temperatures at short wavelengths can enable higher product yield.

Solar Panel Production

EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors provide the low-temperature capability, speed, and repeatability necessary for tabber/stringer process steps. Our capabilites can increase quality and yield during laser or induction soldering of individual solar cells into modules.

Thin Film Production

The capability of BASF’s advanced EXACTUS® optical temperature sensors to measure low temperatures at short wavelengths makes it well suited for thin film deposition applications. EXACTUS®’s highly repeatable measurements and fast response time can enable higher product yields.
