CSSC-11

CSSC-11 and SiMat-4 | Online Workshop | September 1-3, 2021

New deadline for abstract submission: May 25th, 2021

Scope

The online workshop will be held in autumn 2021. This year and for the second time, we offer the participants of the SiMat and CSSC workshops a joint and unique event hosted by the University of Lisbon in Portugal. The CSSC workshop focuses on the silicon material and the substrate with strong attention on crystallization. The SiMat workshop focuses across the interface between silicon materials and cell and module technologies looking at the impact on performance and reliability of the final module. Combining the two workshops will create a fantastic opportunity to exchange knowledge and insights between industrial and scientific participants from the two communities. The program will include invited and contributed oral and poster presentations in addition to several open forum discussions on selected topics.


Welcome to an unique silicon for photovoltaics event!

Topics to be covered by the workshop will be

• Fundamental materials science related to crystalline silicon solar cells
• Silicon feedstock technologies
• Crystallization of multicrystalline, quasi-mono, monocrystalline silicon
• Advanced wire sawing and emerging kerfless technologies
• Novel materials and processing for advanced cell architecture 
• Impact of silicon material to the performance of cell, module and PV system
• Degradation phenomena related to silicon materials on cell and module performance (e.g. LID, LeTID, PID, hotspot, etc.)

In the past, CSSC was held in Sendai, Japan (2006), Xiamen, China (2007), Trondheim, Norway (2009), Taipei, Taiwan (2010), Boston, USA (2011), Aix-les-Bains, France (2012), Fukuoka, Japan (2013), Bamberg, Germany (2015),  Tempe, USA (2016) and Sendai (2018). SiMat was held in Amsterdam, the Netherlands (2008), Rome, Italy (2013), Tempe, USA (2016).
