PV School 2024 -Thematic school on Physics of Solar Cells

After the great success of the previous editions of the PV School in 2018 (Physics of Solar Cells: from basics to nanoscience), 2020 (Physics of Solar Cells: from basic principles to advanced characterization), and 2022 (Physics of Solar Cells : from basic principles to material science) in the famous Les Houches School of Physics, the 4th edition of the PV School will focus on 


Physics of Solar Cells: from basic principles to high performance
Les Houches School of Physics, 12-17 May 2024, France 

This school will cover the physics of solar cells, from basic principles to advanced concepts, with a focus on high performance. It will open on a series of lectures devoted to the basic physics for solar cells (thermodynamics, opto-electronic properties of semiconductors…) setting a frame shared by all materials and technologies. It will then turn to the diversity of challenges facing the field (high conversion efficiency, low material consumption, high throughput processes, low degradation rate, tailored mechanical and optical properties), bridging the gap between fundamental and applied research.
