Photovoltaic Applied Research Laboratory

Activities

  • investigation of produced and new designed solar cells and their structures for manufacturers of solar cells and researchers of educational institutions.
  • Manufacturers of solar cells, faced with the technological problems in the manufacturing process, have an opportunity to determine detailed analysis of carrier concentration distribution, spectral response, contact and an emitter resistors. This allows effectively to solve the problems and choose an optimal solution to the problem.
