Announcing the NEW XsunX CIGSolar™ Thermal Sources!


XsunX CIGSolar Effusion Sources for Copper, Indium, and Gallium


Production-scale thermal deposition sources for CIGS solar cells

XsunX has designed material-specific thermal deposition sources for use exclusively in our high-volume, low cost CIGSolar™ cell manufacturing line insuring the highest quality film properties and uniformity. 

Features of the CIGSolar™ thermal effusion sources for Copper, Indium, and Gallium that are a significant improvement over other traditional and more expensive designs include:


  • Unique patent pending heater features a single power source design leading to significantly lower equipment, energy use, and operating costs
  • Streamlined, innovative filament heating and insulation design eliminates water-cooling requirements
  • Crucible design provides for consistent flux uniformity over the entire operation cycle
  • Production scale capacity, ease-of-maintenance, and inexpensive total-cost-of-ownership
  • Integrated adjustment mechanism accommodates different substrate sizes and film requirements


XsunX’s patent pending CIGSolar™ thermal effusions sources are available exclusively on XsunX’s CIGSolar™ cell manufacturing lines.
