Low-Cost Ultra-Thin Flexible Silicon Photovoltaics

Performance optimization and prototype demonstration of the low-cost high-efficiency Localized Inherently Thin (LIT) solar cell technology platform will be carried out during the two year Mitacs Elevate Post Doctoral Fellowship program. The candidate will also design and optimize the fabrication process, working alongside industry staff, for technology transfer and commercialization. A business study will also be carried out as part of the program in order to establish the framework for large scale manufacturing. The industrial partner will benefit through the opportunity to develop and contribute to the commercialization of next generation of solar cell technology - aimed towards making solar electricity ubiquitous.
