The direct conversion of sunlight into electricity using solar cells is a key technology for the sustainable energy supply of the future. Thin film solar cells are the fastest growing branch of the booming photovoltaic market. The announced workshop will focus on the long-term stability of thin film solar cells. Renowned speakers will give a general overview of the field, identify stability issues common to all technologies, and focus on selected degradation phenomena of thin film solar cells. Research results can also be presented in a poster session. There will be plenty of time for discussion over lunch and during an aperitif after the workshop.
This workshop is part of the DURSOL project «Exploring and Improving Durability of Thin Film Solar Cells», www.dursol.ch. DURSOL is a project that brings together the major Swiss research teams and companies in the field of thin film photovoltaics.
