Veeco's new line of thermal deposition sources for CIGS includes PV-Series SUMO (for copper, indium and gallium) and PV-Series Valved (for selenium selenium (səlē`nēəm), nonmetallic chemical element; symbol Se; at. no. 34; at. wt. 78.96; m.p. 217°C;; b.p. about 685°C;; sp. gr. 4.81 at 20°C;; valence −2, +4, or +6. and sulfur) for R & D and production environments. "Veeco's new PV-Series sources for CIGS represent the industry's first commercially available production-scale thermal deposition solution for thin film solar manufacturing," said Jeffrey Hohn, vice president and general manager, Veeco MBE MBE (in Britain) Member of the Order of the British Empire
