Industry Workshop: Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells (in-person)

Materials for Sustainable Tandem Solar Cells with Highest Conversion Efficiency


Industry Workshop / 25.10.2023

Perovskite Silicon Tandem Solar Cells

October 25, 2023, 09 am - 03 pm

Fraunhofer ISE, Freiburg, Germany


The Fraunhofer Gesellschaft tackles the current challenges of the German industry. With lighthouse projects, we set strategic priorities in order to develop concrete solutions for the benefit of Germany as a business location. The aim is to quickly convert original scientific ideas into marketable products. In the Fraunhofer lighthouse project "MaNiTU - materials for sustainable tandem solar cells with the highest conversion efficiency”, six Fraunhofer institutes have been working closely together since 2019 to develop the solar cells of the future. With a planned industrial workshop, we want to involve our industrial partners in the project at an early stage, in order to cover the needs of industry with the bundled competencies of the Fraunhofer institutes involved.

We therefore invite you to a free-of-cost one-day industrial workshop at Fraunhofer ISE in Freiburg (Breisgau) on October 25th, 2023. On this day we want to inform you about the knowledge and capacities that have emerged from the Fraunhofer lighthouse project MaNiTu. We want to cover a wide range of topics, from material synthesis, manufacturing processes and cell processing to the characterization and modeling of materials and processes. In interactive discussion rounds, we would also like to respond to your questions and ideas and develop them further together. The day offers a comprehensive insight into the current activities on perovskite silicon tandem solar cells at the six participating Fraunhofer institutes. 

We look forward to your lively participation!
