Abstract:

The use of cost-efficient concentrating optics coupled to the use of high-efficiency cells has proven the potential for the cost reduction for PV. Micro-concentrators could further boost efficiency of thin-film solar cells by giving rise to a possible new route in the solar photovoltaic applications.The first part of this short course will introduce the application of micro-concentrators  to thin-film solar cells.  Conventional and novel optoelectronic characterization methods that can be useful for the studies of micro-concentrator thin film solar cells and related materials will be presented (TUT).The  second part will  introduce the microcentrator optics and the printed polymeric microlenses  as a new route to realize concentrating optics for thin film PV (ENEA).
