Project description

Three work packages: (1) efficiency improvement of thin film polycrystalline silicon cells. (2) Feasibility of cells with Si nano wires, to serve as a top cell in tandem structures. (3) lift-off of a thin Si layer from a thick substrate to serve as solar cell substrate. UGent contributes to (1) and (2).
