Symposium E: Photovoltaic Technologies–Materials, Devices, and Systems

Photovoltaic Technologies–Materials, Devices, and Systems

This symposium aims at providing a dynamic forum to explore new materials, concepts, and approaches toward achieving low-cost, high-efficiency, and high-reliability photovoltaic (PV) systems, as well as linking multidisciplinary areas of research (physics, chemistry, materials science) and engineering for advancing the state-of-the-art PV technology.

Abstracts are solicited for both oral and poster presentations.

Session topics will include:

  • Advances in Si technology
  • Thin-film solar cells
  • III-V and concentrator
  • New materials, concepts, and fundamentals for future technology
  • PV modules and systems
  • Materials modeling for photovoltaic energy conversion

Invited Speakers Include:

Harry Atwater (California Inst. of Technology), Kylie Catchpole (Australian National Univ., Australia), Ramesh Dhere (National Renewable Energy Lab), Jennifer Dionne (Stanford Univ.), Matthew Doty (Univ. of Delaware), Simon Farard (Cyrium Technologies, Canada), Stephen Forest (Univ. of Michigan), Lewis Fraas (JX Crystals), Alex Freundlich (Univ. of Houston), Takashi Fukui (Hokkaido Univ., Japan), Alexander Govorov (Ohio Univ.), Karin Hinzer (Univ. of Ottawa, Canada), Seth Hubbard (Rochester Inst. of Technology), Thomas Kodendandath (ITN Energy Systems), Luke Mawst (Univ. of Wisconsin-Madison), Vladimir Mitin (SUNY-Buffalo), Albert Polman (FOM Inst. for Atomic and Molecular Physics, Netherlands), Daniel Schaadt (IEPT, Germany), Paul Sharps (EMCORE Photovoltaics), Deren Yang (Zhejiang Univ., China), Hojun Yoon (Solergy).
