5th Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week

16 -18 April 2013 in Berlin Adlershof

The only week in the world that is dedicated exclusively to thin-film photovoltaics.

Once again, the Thin-Film Week will be dedicated exclusively to thin-film photovoltaics, combining scientific and technological workshops with a practice-oriented industry forum. The "Photovoltaics Thin-Film Week" is being held as a joint event organized by Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin für Materialien und Energie, PVcomB and Solarpraxis and TU Berlin.

For the first time, the Thin-Film Week will cooperate with the IDTechEx Printed Electronics Europe 2013 event being held in Berlin on 17 -18 April. The co-located PVcomB, Solarpraxis, TU Berlin and IDTechEx Photovoltaics conference track on April 18th will form an additional part of the thin-film week, bringing togther the solar and printed electronics industry in order to discuss the current opportunities and issues of both sectors.

The week includes two key events:

  • Thin-Film Workshop (4th International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology - organized by PVcomB). 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. Details and registration here.
