Solibro Research AB, Uppsala, Sweden, is the R&D organisation of Solibro which has its production in Thalheim, Germany. The main activities performed at this R&D organisation are in the area of CIGS thin film solar cells. Up to date the cumulative production of commercial CIGS thin film PV modules amounts to 230 MWP, which makes Solibro the second largest CIGS company worldwide. Embracing this project, SRAB main role will be to optimise the CIGS process for a 0.5 µm thickness and integrate this process on substrates with high reflectance and passivated back contact developed by other project members. The second main activity is to scale this process to full-size modules.
In recent years, the competition in the PV industry became increasingly fierce and, in order to stand out in the industry, SRAB reduced production costs by lowering the CIGS thickness. This project will establish a connection between new partners who can share expertise in certain areas outside SRAB core competence, giving them an advantage regarding the competition and knowledge, fulfilling their employee’s needs.
From SRAB, the team who will participate directly in the project will be Dr Viktoria Gusak, PhD degree in physics from Chalmers University of Technology, Dr Sven SÖdergren, PhD degree in Physics from Uppsala University, Dr Ulf Malm, electrical characterization and modelling, Dr Erik Wallin , PhD in Thin Films Physics from LinkÖping University, Dr Olle Lundberg, Vice President, Research & Development at Solibro Research AB and Dr Lars Stol, the adjunct professor at Department of Engineering Sciences at Uppsala University and CTO at Solibro.
