5th International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology (IW-CIGSTech 5)

2 - 3 April 2014 in Berlin, Germany

Once again, the well-established workshop will be dedicated to CIGS solar cell technology, combining scientific and technological aspects with their industrial applications.

The "IW-CIGSTech 5" is being organized by PVcomB the technology transfer-oriented research institute of the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie.

The workshop consists of invited talks and discussions on present status and future prospects of compound semiconductor technologies. The number of invited participants will be limited to about 100. Activities in the CIGS sector are distributed worldwide and accordingly we invite CIGS-experts from Asia, Europe as well as the USA to participate.This time, the workshop will be extended to include Kesterite and Perovskite materials and cells.

The complete program of the workshop is now available.

In April 2013, the 4th Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology was part of the Thin-Film Week 2013 in Berlin-Adlershof. This event was a huge success with about 600 attendees from research, industry, politics, financing and business development who discussed the latest developments in thin-film photovoltaics.

This year, for the first time, the workshop will be a single event offering more than before a perfect atmosphere to meet CIGS experts from research and industry in an informative and relaxed workshop.
