SEMI International Standards
Task Force Organization Form (TFOF)
Task Force Name: PV Materials Task Force
|Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic (PV) - Materials|
|Originating Technical Committee Region: North America|
1. Identify standardization needs and priorities for specifications, guidelines and procedures related to Materials that become an integral part of a PV “device” e.g. cells, modules, etc.
Examples of such material include, but are not limited to: substrates, TCO films, optical enhancement films, conductive interconnect, insulator materials, absorber films, PVB, EVA, backsheet, sputtering targets, starting material e.g. UMG Si, Poly-si, etc.
Specifically excluded: Bulk Chemicals, Gases and Water; these are already addressed in a separate TF
2. Ensure this activity supports the PV Standards Roadmap.
1.Survey PV producers, material suppliers, other SDOs (e,g, ASTM, etc.) consortia (e.g. NREL, NIST, etc.) and DOE interests to validate and prioritize the prospective materials list.
2.Develop a list of key players to support the TF efforts.
3.Find leaders for selected TF activities.
4.Generate a document development plan
3. Formal linkages with Task Forces in other Regions:
Europe – tbd
Japan – tbd
Taiwan – tbd
Korea - tbd
