Our blog is dedicated to a global discussion about the ideas, actions and technologies changing the world as we know it.
As General Manager of Applied Materials Xi’an, China, Dr. Gang Zou oversees the overall operations of Applied’s largest overseas Research & Development facility. The 40,000-square-meter solar technology lab consists of a complete line for crystalline silicon solar PV manufacturing and supports Applied’s internal R&D activities, customer demos and training.
Last week, Applied Materials participated in the 5th SNEC PV Power Expo in Shanghai. Since this show began in 2007, China has become the world’s foremost supplier of solar cells and modules, and SNEC is now one of the industry’s largest, must-attend solar events.In our exhibit booth, Applied Materials proudly articulated our leadership on the large centerpiece backboard — "#1 Solar PV Manufacturing Solutions." Visitors to our booth learned about what has driven our success: Applied’s Baccini systems for screen printing applications and our PWS wafering tools.
