The Fraunhofer ISE Laboratory and Service Centre LSC in Gelsenkirchen, in the State of North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW), was founded in 2000. It serves as a partner for the photovoltaic industry also beyond the borders of NRW. Solar cell manufacturers draw on the services of LSC for quality control of their production and for rapid solutions to problems in their processing lines. The services offered by the Laboratory include the simulation and optimisation of in-line processes, the development of new processes and structures for solar cells as well as research on large-area hetero-junction solar cells of amorphous and crystalline silicon. LSC Gelsenkirchen also offers training sessions on characterisation procedures and solar cell technology.
