The department has an international expertise on characterisation, development and processing of solar cells based on crystalline silicon.

Foss, Sean Erik

Head of Department


Our activity is built mainly around the solar cell laboratory at IFE, which contains a dedicated line for producing silicon-based solar cells, unique in the Nordic countries. Additionally, a well-equipped solar cell characterization laboratory is also present for measuring all kinds of structural, electrical and optical properties.

A more detailed description of the solar energy R&D activities at IFE is available on the page Subject - Solar Energy .
