Photovoltaics manufacturing is arguably the hottest current topic for industrial laser applications. And with good reason. The solar cell manufacturing industry has grown at a rate of better than 30% in the last decade and is expected to grow in size to $10 billion by 2020. What's more, economic stimulus packages are re-igniting activity, even in countries where subsidies have ended.
