The 36th European PV Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) will take place in Marseille from 9 to 13 September 2019. Last year, the conference was attended by over 2000 participants from more than 80 countries. This year, there will be 9 contributions from ISFH scientists.

On Monday morning, Dennis Bredemeier discusses the Impact of silicon nitride film properties on hydrogen in-diffusion into crystalline silicon (2AO.4.4).

Tuesday afternoon, Dr. Robby Peibst and Dr. Yevgeniya Larionova present the Efficiency potential of the “Both polarities poly-Si front side structured” (Boss) cell and its elegant realization by LPCVD (2BO.2.1) as well as Screen printed double-side contacted POLO-cells with ultra-thin poly-Si layers (2BO.2.6).

During the subsequent sessions, Dr. Stefan Bordihn explains Modelling of Passivation and Conductivity of n-type Poly-Si Layers adapting Machine Learning (2BO.3.1), while Dr. Malte Vogt shows a path to Boosting PV module efficiency beyond the efficiency of its solar cells– An optical simulation study (4BO.11.3).

Marc-Uwe Halbich is working on Improving organic-silicon heterojunction solar cells through the admixture of sorbitol to PEDOT:PSS (2CO.9.6) and will present his results on Wednesday morning.

During the poster session after the lunch break, Michael Winter examines Degradation and Regeneration of n+-Poly-Si on Oxide Surface Passivation under Illumination and Dark Annealing on p-type Cz-Si (2CV.2.4) and Dr. Dominic Walter is Comparing Cz-Si PERC solar cells from various manufacturers regarding BO-related light-induced degradation and regeneration (2CV.2.101).

On Friday morning, Dr. Robby Peibst will show first results from a joint project that deals with Efficient Si photovoltaics for electrically powered utility vehicles – STREET (6EO.2.4).
