Solar Power Lab is engaged in research activities on different aspects of Photovoltaics.
We were pleased to present our perspective on thin silicon cells at the Advanced Training Program on Net-Zero Climate Emissions organized by UT Austin Portugal Program. Send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Check the recent publication at ACS Appl. Mater. Interfaces where we helped our colleagues at Caltech and University of Illinois at Urbana−Champaign to develop SHJ microcells to be integrated in windows.
Just published @ Joule: Monitoring of Photovoltaic System Performance Using Outdoor Suns-Voc. Great work of Alex Killam and Joe Karas!

A good surprise: Our SolMat paper on 40 µm-thick screen-printed heterojunction solar cells with 20.48% efficiency was news in PV-magazine!
Just published: Thin silicon and J0s 10x smaller than the sate-of-the-art are required to increase efficiency. Check: https://pubs.rsc.org/en/content/articlehtml/2020/ta/d0ta04575f
Just published: Great work of Joe Karas on reliability of Cu-plated solar cells and modules. Check: https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.1002/pip.3331
Just published: Great work of Pradeep Balaji on surface passivation of very thin silicon heterojunction solar cells.
Check our silicon heterojunction manufacturing line at SPL. This video shows the main steps to manufacture silicon heterojunction solar cells.
