SiliconPV 2018 - 8th International Conference on Crystalline Silicon Photovoltaics

Share this Post:

March 19-21 - Lausanne, Switzerland


The 8th edition of SiliconPV will be hosted by the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EPFL). 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 as well as locally contacted, dielectrically passivated solar cells and modules,
  • solar cells based on selective contacts and novel device architectures,
  • advanced materials, wafers, cells and module processing, novel interconnection and encapsulation technologies,
  • characterisation techniques and modelling, next generation multi-junction crystalline silicon based tandem solar cells.

As in the last years, the nPV workshop will take place successively to the SiliconPV conference with one overlapping day and a joined conference dinner. This will give you a complete overview of all trends, innovations and developments of n-type technology.
