Crystals Events

8–11 April 2019 SiliconPV 2019 - 9th International Conference on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics

Leuven, Belgium

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
