Symposium on Light Management in Photovoltaics
Friday, August 30, 2019

LMPV Symposium 2019

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.

Registration for the LMPV symposium is closed now.
