SEMI International Standards
Task Force Organization Form (TFOF)


Task Force Name: Japan PV Materials Task Force


Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic
Originating Technical Committee Region: Japan


1. Charter:


1. Identify standardization needs and priorities for specifications, guidelines and procedures related to Materials used for manufacturing PV cells/modules and systems.

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.

2. Participate and support the PV Standards Roadmap discussion.


2. Scope:

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
NA – PV Materials Task Force
Taiwan – tbd
