Workshop »Lasers in Silicon Photovoltaics« on May 25, 2011 in Munich

18.03.2011
Supplying the world with electricity from renewable sources is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. A decisive aspect is the effort to considerably reduce the costs of generating electricity from photovoltaics and to increase cell efficiencies. But it is still a long way to make this product competitive with conventionally generated electricity, in other words, to reach grid parity.

Lasers as production tools offer a large potential for reaching these goals. Because of their spatially selective, contact-less and controllable processing characteristics, lasers are highly suitable for the production of sensitive components such as solar cells.

On May 25, 2011 the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT, together with the consortium of the European project SOLASYS, is hosting a workshop about »Laser for Photovoltaics« in Munich. In conjunction with the »Laser 2011 World of Photonics« event, experts from science and industry will present the latest research results and current applications, technological challenges and processing solutions for the precision machining of crystalline solar cells. All lectures will be held in English language. Registration is open from March 2011. Please contact Dr. Schulz-Ruthenberg, Fraunhofer ILT directly (malte.schulz-ruhtenberg@ilt.fraunhofer.de).

Im Focus: Strathclyde-led research develops world's highest gain high-power laser amplifier

The world's highest gain high power laser amplifier - by many orders of magnitude - has been developed in research led at the University of Strathclyde.

The researchers demonstrated the feasibility of using plasma to amplify short laser pulses of picojoule-level energy up to 100 millijoules, which is a 'gain'...

Im Focus: Can the immune system be boosted against Staphylococcus aureus by delivery of messenger RNA?

Staphylococcus aureus is a feared pathogen (MRSA, multi-resistant S. aureus) due to frequent resistances against many antibiotics, especially in hospital infections. Researchers at the Paul-Ehrlich-Institut have identified immunological processes that prevent a successful immune response directed against the pathogenic agent. The delivery of bacterial proteins with RNA adjuvant or messenger RNA (mRNA) into immune cells allows the re-direction of the immune response towards an active defense against S. aureus. This could be of significant importance for the development of an effective vaccine. PLOS Pathogens has published these research results online on 25 May 2017.

Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) is a bacterium that colonizes by far more than half of the skin and the mucosa of adults, usually without causing infections....

Im Focus: A quantum walk of photons

Physicists from the University of Würzburg are capable of generating identical looking single light particles at the push of a button. Two new studies now demonstrate the potential this method holds.

The quantum computer has fuelled the imagination of scientists for decades: It is based on fundamentally different phenomena than a conventional computer....

Im Focus: Turmoil in sluggish electrons’ existence

An international team of physicists has monitored the scattering behaviour of electrons in a non-conducting material in real-time. Their insights could be beneficial for radiotherapy.

We can refer to electrons in non-conducting materials as ‘sluggish’. Typically, they remain fixed in a location, deep inside an atomic composite. It is hence...

Im Focus: Wafer-thin Magnetic Materials Developed for Future Quantum Technologies

Two-dimensional magnetic structures are regarded as a promising material for new types of data storage, since the magnetic properties of individual molecular building blocks can be investigated and modified. For the first time, researchers have now produced a wafer-thin ferrimagnet, in which molecules with different magnetic centers arrange themselves on a gold surface to form a checkerboard pattern. Scientists at the Swiss Nanoscience Institute at the University of Basel and the Paul Scherrer Institute published their findings in the journal Nature Communications.

Ferrimagnets are composed of two centers which are magnetized at different strengths and point in opposing directions. Two-dimensional, quasi-flat ferrimagnets...
