Job description

Ph.D. student position in the area of thin film silicon solar cells
We have available a Ph.D. position in the area
of thin film silicon solar cells. The research comprizes the deposition
and optical and electronic analysis of thin films and solar cells and
will be executed in cooperation with industry. Aim of the research is
to optimize the conversion efficiency of a thin film solar cell based
on the micro-morph concept. This is a tandem cell with a top cell based
on amorphous silicon and a bottom cell based on micro-crystalline
silicon. The results will be implemented in the production process.
