Tutorial 2: Thin films for conversion of solar energy

In this tutorial current challenges in the thin film technology for conversion of solar energy (photovoltaics and solarthermics) as well as examples for successful manufacturing of thin film solar cells and solar absorbers will be discussed.

The tutorial will be chaired by Günter Bräuer and Volker Sittinger, Fraunhofer-Institut für Schicht- und Oberflächentechnik, Braunschweig (GER).

This tutorial (PDF, 12 kB) will be held on Sunday, September 09, 2012, 09:00 - 18:00, Room Dreitorspitze.
