LMPV symposia

LMPV symposium August 30, 2019

Workshop on Light Management in Photovoltaics,
AMOLF and WCW Conference Center, Friday August 30, 2019

Organizers: Albert Polman, Erik C. Garnett, Bruno Ehrler & Esther Alarcón Lladó

At this symposium on August 30 we discuss the latest developments in light management for solar cells. The core of our program consists of four talks by international speakers and covers investigations of methods and materials to ultimately go beyond the efficiency of conventional solar cells. This symposium is intended for everyone in solar cell research and provides a broad overview of the most exciting directions in photovoltaic light management. This year’s keynote speakers were Tomas Kirchartz (FZ Jülich, University of Duisburg-Essen), Jean-François Guillemoles (CNRS, Paris), Detlef van Vuuren (PBL Netherlands Environmental Assessment Agency), and Anita Ho-Baillie (UNSW, Sydney).
