SEMI International Standards
Task Force Organization Form (TFOF)


Task Force Name: PV Electrical & Optical Properties Measurements Task Force


Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic (PV) - Materials
Originating Technical Committee Region: North America


1. Charter:

Develop standards for measuring electrical and optical properties of PV materials that become an integral part of a PV “device” e.g. cells, modules, etc.

2. Scope:
Examples of such PV 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 are: Minority Carrier Lifetime, and Bulk Chemicals, Gases and Water, as these are already addressed in separate TFs.


3. Formal linkages with Task Forces in other Regions:
Europe – PV Silicon Materials TF (observer TF)
Japan - PV Materials TF
