Solar cell ribbon peeling
The mechanical, electrical and thermal quality of ribbon bonds to the silicon solar cell they are mounted to is important to optimise yield, electrical efficiency and life expectancy. Such bonds can be tested using a ribbon peel test where the force required to peel (break) them and the observed failure mode are used to characterise quality.
