The last few weeks have been very exciting and filled with achievements for XsunX. Progress in the assembly of our breakthrough CIGSolarTM technology has been accelerating as we work to accomplish major milestones. Just last week the CIGSolarTM tool passed the cold automation and vacuum leak testing and our last update let you know that our patent application has, in fact, been submitted to the U.S. Patent Office.
You can see the overall CIGSolarTM system progress and the vacuum testing process by clicking over to our CIGSolar project update page.
To pass the cold vacuum test, the system underwent a "leak-down rate" test. It was brought under extreme vacuum where it was required to hold different vacuum rates for pre-defined periods of time. This cold testing procedure was completed on May 4th.
During the current stage of assembly, the focus is to complete the assembly and installation of the heating system. This allows us to move quickly to a final series of test procedures of the integrated material transport, heating, and vacuum systems while the tool is under vacuum and fully heated, called "unit testing".
During this series of tests, the system will be cycled repeatedly through all the operations in unison to ensure proper operation. Since high temperatures and vacuum can influence overall system performance, these tests are important to ensure operation according to design.
After successful testing, the system will be ready to prep for shipment to XsunX. The installation of our patent pending thermal evaporation crucible systems will be one of the last components to be installed into the CIGSolarTM system which we plan to complete at XsunX. Our goal is to produce high performance samples for our existing interested customers as soon as possible.
Thanks again for your time, support, interest, and we look forward to providing more updates soon. Have a great week.
