Thin Film chalcogenide photovoltaic materials


Sunday afternoon May 24
Congress & Exhibition Centre, Strasbourg
Room: tba


As part of the Symposium A: Thin film chalcogenide photovoltaic materials

Young scientist tutorial for thin-film solar cells


Tutorial overview:

This tutorial is intended for young researchers (students and post-graduates within 3 years of degree completion) who are active in the field of thin-film solar cells and would like to learn the fundamentals of characterization methods that are being used in research and development of these materials and devices. All presentations will be given (mostly) by young, yet experienced researchers who are active in the characterization of Si-, III-V-, chalcogenide-, kesterite-, as well as perovskite-based solar cells. Although these materials will be discussed as model systems, the presentations will primarily focus on the characterization and simulation techniques and thus should be of interest to participants from other symposia as well. Since 2005, this tutorial has already been organized successfully at various E-MRS and MRS Spring Meetings.


Tutorial outline:

  • Fundamental characterization and modeling of thin-film solar cells
  • Overview of various scanning probe microscopy techniques
  • Optoelectronic characterization of photovoltaic materials and devices
