Tour of Applied Materials' Facilities for Display and Solar Applications


For this year's field trip, we want to see some of the biggest vacuum equipment commercially available, for display and solar applications. The display equipment goes up to Generation 10, which uses glass approximately 2.9m x 3.1m (9'x10') in size, and can make 15 x 42" displays on a single sheet.

The solar panels made by AKT equipment are the largest in the world, with 5.7m2 panels (2.2m x 2.6m). Come see them for yourself!

Building 93 is the primary manufacturing location for Applied Materials display products in the US. Activities in Building 93 consist primarily of the assembly and test of process chambers for AKT PECVD systems. We will also be visiting Building 92 which is the AKT Applications Lab. The AKT Applications lab is the primary research and development center in the US for both Display and Thin Film solar products. It currently has test stands for every generation of display products from generation 2 to generation 10. A test stand consists of a process chamber and manual load lock.

Also in the Apps lab is the test stand for PECVD thin film solar. The lab provides equipment for development of new generation of hardware and processes as well as a location to provide demo's for customers interested in our equipment.
