About The Workshop

On May 11-12, 2010, prominent photovoltaic (PV) industry experts met in Denver, Colorado to explore the challenges and solutions needed to advance next generation PV technologies. The workshop was part of NIST's broad-based effort to identify technical challenges to commercial development of advanced solar photovoltaic (PV) technologies, and focused on the following technology groupings:

  • Wafer-based Crystalline Silicon PV
  • Amorphous Silicon and Polycrystalline Thin Film PV
  • III-V Multi-Junction PV
  • Excitonic and Quantum-Structured PV

The workshop featured networking with internationally recognized PV experts, discussing and prioritizing technical challenges to the PV industry, identifying PV measurement capabilities, and a dialogue on new perspectives on the trends, drivers, and challenges.

The results of the workshop have been published in two reports that are being used to help to guide the future measurement and science agenda for advanced photovotaics.
