Herbstschule zur Charakterisierung und Modellierung von Dünnschicht-Solarzellen

Schöner Tagungsort für gute Wissenschaft: Die Herbstschule in Schwielow führt junge Wissenschaftler in Themen rund um die Dünnschichtphotovoltaik ein.

Vom 2.  bis 7. November 2014 veranstaltet das Helmholtz-Virtuelle Institut  "Microstructure Control for Thin‐Film Solar Cells" eine Herbstschule rund um die Dünnschichtphotovoltaik-Forschung. Die Herbstschule findet im Resort Hotel Schwielowsee in der Nähe von Potsdam statt und richtet sich insbesondere an junge Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler.

In research and development of solar cells, the issue of microstructure and its impact on the device performance is often regarded inadequately, mostly because of insufficient knowledge about analysis and simulation methods. Apart from the microstructural properties of completed thin films in semiconductor devices, it is also of concern how the microstructure develops during growth.

The school aims at giving insight into various techniques for microstructural analysis as well as simulation methods of the growth of crystalline materials apart from a session on electricalmaterials and device characterization. Each session will comprise a keynote lecture of an expert in the corresponding field, followed by a 2‐3 hours hands‐on tutorial, giving the participants the possibility to get deeper into the topic, with the help of a specific question to be solved in teamwork practices.

Two poster sessions are also planned as evening events, which intensify the discussions and scientific exchange between experts and participants.
