Main Evaporation Chamber Undergoing Assembly
To the left and below, the CIGSolar™ evaporator system is moving closer to the start of its testing phase as major portions of its sub assemblies are installed.

As more and more of the parts and sub-assemblies have begun to move from the storage shelves and testing benches into the CIGSolar™ evaporator, the system has begun to morph from a steel box towards what we believe will be the next step in the evolution of CIGS evaporation technology.
The CIGSolar™ evaporator has undergone and will continue to undergo substantial visual changes as we work to fully assemble and test the system.

To the left is an example of one of the material load lock chambers undergoing installation of its access doors and control systems.
In the video below you can see how the material access door, or flapper, operates to allow the CIGS cells to be quickly transported between process zones.
