Participants learn the basics of thin film photovoltaics: the technology, the fabrication processes, and reliability. The course covers seven major topic areas.
By using a combination of instruction by lecture, problem solving and question/answer sessions, and participants will learn practical information about the solar photovoltaic industry. From the very first moments of the seminar until the last sentence of the training, the driving instructional factor is application. We use instructors who are internationally recognized experts in their fields that have years of experience (both current and relevant) in this field.
Dr. Albin is a senior scientist at the National Renewable Energy Laboratory (NREL) in Golden, CO USA. He has over 25 years experience in CdTe and Cu(In,Ga)Se2 thin film cell R&D. He has designed and built numerous thin film deposition and treatment systems, developed device modeling and fabrication data management software, and pioneered research in understanding degradation in polycrystalline, thin-film solar cells. His external activities include organizing solar cell reliability activities for the Society of Photo-Optical Instrumentation Engineers (SPIE) and the IEEE International Physics of Reliability (IRPS) and working with numerous international companies through privately-funded agreements.
