The increase in performance of industrially produced solar cells has now resulted in levels of conversion efficiency which only a few years ago were considered unattainable. This huge achievement has been made possible by closely coordinating the analysis of performance-limiting factors with the development of technological improvements which are specifically raising the performance limitation bar ever higher. Thanks to our many years of experience in solar cell physics and the use and continuous development of the latest measurement and evaluation methods, we at Fraunhofer ISE have been able to make a major contribution to this development.
We can offer you our wide-ranging experience in the analysis of solar cells, not only for the further improvement of your existing technology but also in particular to assist you with the development of new process steps. At PV-TEC, we can carry out diverse investigations for solar cell analysis on your behalf, ranging from detailed individual analyses, including referral back to the starting material and solar cell precursors, to the examination of large piece quantities. Your personal contact will draw up a list of the various services to match your requirements and will coordinate processing and reporting the results.
At our CalLab PV Cells, a calibration laboratory accredited for solar cells to ISO17025, we can also measure the current-voltage characteristic curve and the spectral response of most types of solar cells with high precision and in a manner traceable to SI units.
