  • Testing standardization is important to all products, although it is often overseen when new technologies are first introduced.  Low temperature metallization paste is a product that fits this "new technology" catagory. 
    Note: Low temperature metallization paste is a material that is used in various thin film technology applications like CIGS (Copper Indium Gallium) solar cells.  The picture shown to the right features 3 different test patterns - which yeild very different test results.

    Do not fear though, we've published "Test Methods for Measuring the Volume Resistivity and Contact Resistance of LTTF-7888 Solar Metallization Paste".  This is a new application note compiled from R&D testing and customer feedback.  Let me know what you think, especially if you have a chance to use this test method!
