PV Materials Committee

PV Materials Committee

Explore, evaluate, discuss, and create consensus-based standard measurement methods, specifications, guidelines, and practices that, through voluntary compliance, will promote mutual understanding and improved communication between users and suppliers of
photovoltaic materials and related metrology equipment  to enhance the manufacturing efficiency and capability so as to reduce manufacturing cost of the photovoltaic (PV) industry.


  • To include liaisons and synergies with other SEMI technical committees for the development of PV-related standards.
  • The PV standards committee scope is limited to exploring and developing standards that pertain to common criteria, guidelines, methods for control and comparison of PV-related materials. Tentatively, Gas & Chemicals may be included until relevant Committee is formed. It will seek to support the international need for increasing PV product / process yield and reducing related PV costs per Watt peak.
  • In anticipation of ANSI accreditation, this committee will investigate opportunities towards ISO/IEC harmonization of efforts.
  • In addition to the above, the committee will also facilitate any industry initiatives towards product standardization needs.
