What is PERC and Q.ANTUM technology?
The Q.ANTUM Technology developed by Hanwha Q CELLS is based on Passivated Emitter Rear Cell (PERC) technology. PERC techology's benefit is largely due to a reflective layer behind the solar cell, which allows the passivation of the rear side of the solar cell. This state of the art technology allows for capture of previously unused sunlight back into the cell where it can be converted into solar electricity. Hanwha Q CELLS developed yield security technologies including Anti-PID, Anti-LID, Hot-Spot Protect and Tra.Q™ that are a part of our proprietary Q.ANTUM technology. Hanwha Q CELLS is the largest producer of PERC solar cells in the world.
