6th International Workshop on CIGS Solar Cell Technology

The workshop consists of invited talks and discussions on present status and future prospects of compound semiconductor technologies.
Activities in the CIGS sector are followed in many countries and accordingly we invited worldwide CIGS-experts to participate.

Participants will have the opportunity to present their work in frame of a poster session on Wednesday, April 29th. If you are interested in presenting a poster (A0, portrait), please use the registration procedure to inform us about.

Venue: Forum Adlershof, Rudower Chaussee 24, 12489 Berlin Adlershof, Germany ...more
