The SiliconPV conference aims to be the most scientifically distinguished international conference in the field of crystalline silicon photovoltaics. It was initiated in 2011 by renowned European research institutes, between which the conference venue also rotates. After having hosted the conference in 2013, ISFH wanted to welcome the scientific community in Hamelin again in 2021. Unfortunately, the Corona pandemic made a conference in attendance impossible. Nevertheless, the organizing committee was able to realize a top-class scientific program – which can be accessed by registered participants on the virtual conference platform for the next weeks. The personal exchange, e.g. in the context of a pub quiz, as well as the guided tours through the laboratories of the ISFH and the LNQE of the Leibniz Universität Hannover, were also realized virtually. More than 300 participants* thus made the best of the current situation and experienced a pleasant and inspiring conference.
Every year at the SiliconPV conference the 10 best submitted abstracts are awarded with the SiliconPV Award. The evaluation of the abstracts is based on a double anonymous review process, in which each contribution is evaluated by several international scientists without knowledge of the authors. This year, three of these prizes went to ISFH staff members, for which we congratulate them!
This year’s winners from ISFH are Christina Hollemann, Nils Folchert and Michael Winter.
