WEBINAR THIN-FILM SOLAR TECHNOLOGY
ADVANCED INTERCONNECTION TECHNOLOGIES

Advanced interconnection technologies

In this webinar we discuss advanced interconnection technologies as developed at Solliance partners TNO and Forschungszentrum Jülich. Interconnection technology is needed to create a working solar module from a stack of thin-film photovoltaic layers. But the conventional way of creating the interconnection is not very flexible. For the production of large volumes of flexible thin-film solar cells, with n intrinsic flexible design, we need other strategies.

Together with researchers Veronique Gevaerts (TNO) and Stefan Haas (Forschungszentrum Jülich) we discuss these different strategies to create different cells on a thin-film module. We also discuss the challenges to take this process to industrial level. How can you scale up and come to a cost effective high throughput. And what is the forecast on this technology, what possibilities does it open to new applications like a pv-window?

Veronique Gevaerts

Veronique Gevaerts is a research scientist in the Thin-Film PV Module Technology program. She obtained her MSc degree in chemistry at the Utrecht University. Her internship in the group of Prof. dr. Martin Green at UNSW in Sydney, Australia raised her interest in PV. She received her PhD in the field of organic PV at the Eindhoven University of Technology in 2013 under supervision of Prof. dr. ir. René Janssen. After that she directly joined Solliance through ECN Solar Energy, since 2018 part of TNO. Since 2015 she is involved in the advanced interconnection technology developments for thin-film PV and she is co-inventor on several patents on that subject.

Stefan Haas

Stefan Haas did his PhD in Institute of Energy and Climate Research – Photovoltaics (IEK-5) at Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, from 2006-2009 and received his Dr.-Ing. degree in electrical engineering at RWTH Aachen in 2010. In 2010, he started to build up the Device engineering and laser technologies group at IEK5. Dr. Haas has coordinated or participated in several publicity funded, national and European projects .His research is mainly focused on laser processing of solar cells and modules as well as designing solar cells for special applications like in combined photovoltaic electrochemical devices.
