Innovative technologies for manufacturing organic solar cells
The aim of the PhotonFlex project is to develop and test innovative technologies for the cost-effective and highly productive manufacturing of flexible organic solar cells.
The idea is to produce the solar cells with active absorbers from the liquid phase using laser-based techniques for cell switching and highly efficient drying. This project will serve to strengthen the research and mechanical engineering sectors in North Rhine-Westphalia, thereby boosting the region’s solar industry, which is a pillar of sustainable resource utilization.
The project was launched in June 2016 and is set to run for three years.
