Title of Research: Photovoltaics Structure and Properties for Novel Solar Cell Concepts.
Research Purpose: The proposed project focuses on the characterization of new materials and innovative device architectures for sustainable photovoltaics based on thin films. A central requirement for the successful development of materials, devices and production technology is an extensive set of characterization methods that are used to analyze the optoelectronic and structural properties of thin-film materials and related devices. These activities include all relevant length scales from atomistic resolution of nanostructures and elementary processes up to the yield analysis of modules or photovoltaic systems.
