You are cordially invited to the TESTARE Webinar on “Towards upscaling stable single junction and tandem perovskite modules”, which is being organized by the TESTARE partner imec.
This webinar will focus on presenting innovative device architectures compatible with industry-standard techniques like sputtering, evaporation, and slot die coating, covering areas of up to approximately 800cm². The tandem approach represents an innovative strategy involving the integration of perovskite solar cells (PSCs) with other solar cell technologies. This collaborative fusion of materials aims to capitalise on their unique strengths, fostering a synergy that surpasses the limitations of individual cells and significantly amplifies overall energy conversion efficiency.
During the webinar, participants will delve into the immense potential of perovskite tandem structures when deployed on larger scales. Stepping beyond the confines of laboratory experimentation, the scaling up of perovskite tandems presents a new set of challenges and opportunities. It becomes crucial to address scalability issues and fine-tune manufacturing processes to unlock the complete potential of perovskite tandem solar cells for practical, large-scale applications.
When: Wednesday 13 December 2023, 13:00 – 14:00 CET.
Speakers: Dr Arantxa Aguirre (imec), Dr Anurag Krishna (imec).
