Innovative strategies to reduce optical losses through shielding polymer materials for more efficient photovoltaics
Project status: Ended
About Objectives Results Dissemination Team Contact

Project objectives are:  

  •  preparation of new PV shielding materials based on polyimide (PIs) with optimal trade-off between heat resistance, transparency, RI and adhesion; 
  • development of new original fabrication routes of PI surface textures for proper light trapping in PV by combining regular and irregular texturing procedures leading to a less deterministic geometry which randomizes light propagation in the device; 
  • analysis of light management in regard to conversion efficiency by investigation of fundaments of the light-materials interaction;
  • dissemination of obtained results.
