Stable Measurement of Polished Targets Now Possible for ENR PWT

Photowatt, a pioneer in the solar-energy industry since 1979, uses Keyence's LK-G displacement sensor for high-precision detection of wafer thicknesses. In March 2012 the company was acquired by French utility EDF, via its EDF ENR subsidiary, now known as EDF ENR PWT.A wafer is a thin slice of semiconductor material, such as silicon, which generally measures between 200 and 300 microns in...
