Mr. Laurent Clochard
Nines Photovoltaics, Dublin, Ireland
After Masters of Sciences in Physics from Grenoble (France) in 1997 and Dublin (Ireland) in 2000, I have worked in a number of technical development roles in equipment and process development for the semi-conductor industry (TEL Magnetic Solutions, Alyxan), before joining NINES PV and focusing on novel innovative equipment for the PV industry for the last 10 years. I am the CTO of the company, and our main focus is on industrial dry etching process and products. We have developed and patented an innovative technology that provides gaseous etching without the need for vacuum nor plasma, removing the cost from the process and delivering very high throughput. Furthermore, our process has no Green House Gas (GHG).
