SiliconPV: 2nd International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics
April 3-5, 2012
Leuven, Belgium

Special Topic in 2012: Advanced processing technologies and materials for crystalline Si solar cells and modules

In 2010 the photovoltaics sector has again seen a fabulous growth of more than 100%.  Most remarkably, the market share of crystalline Si in this strongly expanding market has been growing confirming that crystalline Si solar cell technology will continue to play a dominating role on the PV-scene in the decade to come.  Developments in crystalline Si solar cells based on crystalline Si in terms of materials, efficiencies and the introduction of new technologies for passivation, junction formation and metallization are accelerating. This is the combined result of the increased R&D-capability of development groups in the industry and their close interaction with institutes and universities, creating a unique community where semiconductor physics, semiconductor process technology and industrial upscaling for these process technologies come together.

SiliconPV 2012, the 2nd  International Conference on Silicon Photovoltaics, will focus on the science and technology of advanced crystalline silicon solar cells and modules and the properties and influence of the crystalline Si substrate.  An international committee with global outreach and comprised of well-known scientists from companies and institutes will select the best abstracts to form a high-level scientific program. SiliconPV 2012 will feature inspiring invited lectures, oral and poster presentations describing the most recent advances in the field, a platform for intensive discussions among experts, and the scientifically appropriate publication of the conference papers.

The technical organization of SiliconPV 2012 will be carried out by PSE as in 2011. imec will host the second edition of the SiliconPV conference series in Leuven, Belgium. The conference will be held from April 3 to 5. We are looking forward to your fascinating scientific contributions and vivid discussions in the attractive city of Leuven, where tradition and top scientific and technological progress go hand in hand.
