Aurora’s mission is to deliver exceptional results to the photovoltaic industry through measurement and control of critical processes during solar cell manufacturing.
We measure and map the results of critical cell fabrication processes, providing real-time visualization of material properties and true production tool performance. Our products provide process engineers and production-line operators with the means to rapidly detect and correct process excursions, material faults, limit variations, and optimize processes, thereby eliminating yield-reducing and profit-killing product variation.
We are creating the standard for quality control systems for the global photovoltaic industry.
We develop and market inline measurement, visualization and control systems for the photovoltaic manufacturing industry. Attaining “Grid Parity” with fossil fuel energy sources is the solar industry’s most urgent and important challenge. In the drive to Grid Parity, our unique products, built into the production lines of solar product manufacturers, rapidly solve the urgent need for continuously increasing predictability, reliability and quality of their manufacturing processes. By reducing production variance and increasing yield, our products pay for themselves and generate substantial ongoing annual savings. With ever-tightening profit margins in an increasingly competitive environment, we are an essential element for the leaders in photovoltaic wafer, cell, and module manufacturing.
The Aurora team is led by experienced executives in process measurement, semiconductor manufacturing and industrial automation. We work closely with major solar product manufacturers and production equipment suppliers, and we are involved in research collaborations with leading institutions such as the University of New South Wales and the University of Alberta.
