In this study, the plant layout problem of a worldwide Printed Circuit Board (PCB) producer company is analyzed. Machines are grouped into cells using grouping methodologies of Tabular Algorithm, K-means clustering algorithm, and Hierarchical grouping with Levenshtein distances. Production plant layouts, which are formed by using different techniques, are evaluated using technical and economical indicators.

Dye Sensitized Solar Modules with Embedded Silver Lines
Icli, Kerem Cagatay; Ozenbas, Macit (2016-01-01)
We employed ultrasonic spray deposition method for production of high quality FTO thin film TCOs to be employed in a silver embedded grid type and monolithic type dye sensitized solar modules. Produced films exhibited dense and crystalline structure with homogeneous coverage on solar glass substrates. Obtained resistivity and light transmission values of FTO are comparable to commercially available FTO coated glasses used widely in the industry. After optimization of the chemistry and deposition conditions,...
Photon-to-carrier efficiencies of nanostructured zinc-phthalocyanine/fullerene thin films assessed by time-resolved terahertz spectroscopy
Esentürk, Okan; Lane, Paul A.; Heilweil, Edwin J. (null; 2008-01-01)
Blend and multilayer Zinc-phthalocyanine/fullerene thin films were investigated as model active layers for solar cells by Time-Resolved Terahertz Spectroscopy. A strong dependence on the blend ratio and multilayer nano-structure of the films was found
Production of hydrogenated nanocrystalline silicon based thin film transistor
Aliyeva, Tamila; Atılgan, İsmail; Department of Physics (2010)
The instability under bias voltage stress and low mobility of hydrogenated amorphous silicon (a-Si:H) thin film transistor (TFT), produced by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) technique, are the main problems impeding the implementation of active matrix arrays for light emitting diode display panels and their peripheral circuitry. Replacing a-Si:H by hydrogenated nanocrystalline silicon film (nc-Si:H) seems a solution due to its higher mobility and better stability. Therefore nc-Si:H TFT was...

One-dimensional nanostructures, such as nanorod (NR) arrays, are expected to improve the photovoltaic (PV) response of solar cells with an ultrathin absorber due to an increased areal (junction) density and light trapping. We report on the deposition of CdS and CdTe:As semiconductor thin films on ZnO NR arrays by means of metalorganic chemical vapour deposition (MOCVD). The change in optical properties of the ZnO NRs upon the growth of CdS shell was monitored and compared to the simulated data, which confir...
Photovoltaic performance of Gallium-doped ZnO thin film/Si nanowires heterojunction diodes
Akgul, Guvenc; Akgul, Funda Aksoy; Ünalan, Hüsnü Emrah; Turan, Raşit (2016-04-12)
In this work, photovoltaic performance of Ga-doped ZnO thin film/Si NWs heterojunction diodes was investigated. Highly dense and vertically well-aligned Si NW arrays were successfully synthesised on a p-type (1 0 0)-oriented Si wafer through cost-effective metal-assisted chemical etching technique. Ga-doped ZnO thin films were deposited onto Si NWs via radio frequency magnetron sputtering to construct three-dimensional heterostructures. Photovoltaic characteristics of the fabricated diodes were determined w...
