Indium Corporation expert Malcolm Harrower, Global Sales Manager – Compounds, will share his knowledge on the importance of consistency in high-purity materials at the 10th International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology (IW-CIGSTech 10), May 23-24, Paris, France. 

Tightly-controlled impurity levels in thin-film solar cells are required to be below a few parts per million, enabling the maximum conversion of solar energy to electrical energy. Harrower’s presentation, The Importance of High-Purity Raw Materials’ Consistency in CIGS Semiconductor Manufacturing, examines different targets and factors that define CIG alloy specification and reviews a process for implementation.

Harrower has more than 20 years of experience in the minor metals field. As the Global Sales Manager—Compounds, he is responsible for the sales for Indium Corporation's metals, compounds, and thin-film materials throughout Europe. He works with sales channel partners and technical support teams to cultivate new customers and explore new opportunities to grow and enhance Indium Corporation's business and product lines. He graduated with honors in Metallurgy from Sheffield University, and has a post-graduate diploma in Marketing from University of West London.
