SiliconPV 2019 - 9th International Conference on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics

Monday, 8 April, 2019 to Wednesday, 10 April, 2019
SiliconPV 2019 - 9th International Conference on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics

The 9th edition of SiliconPV will be hosted by imec. It will be the key event for sharing and understanding cutting-edge developments and upcoming trends in Silicon Photovoltaics. It focuses on science and advanced technologies along the value chain of crystalline silicon cells and modules.

It covers short-, mid- and long-term issues including:

  • Processing and characterization of Si materials, wafers, multi- and mono-crystalline silicon including defect passivation and gettering
  • Advanced solar cell architectures and technologies
  • Solar cells based on selective contacts and novel device architectures
  • Next generation multi-junction crystalline silicon based tandem solar cells
  • Advanced materials and technologies for PV-modules including, novel interconnection and encapsulation technologies
  • Characterization techniques and modelling

As in the last years, the nPV workshop will take place successively to the SiliconPV conference with one overlapping day and a joined conference dinner. This will give participants a complete overview of all trends, innovations and developments of n-type technology.
