Description of organization
The University of Verona with 22,000 students, and 1,500 teaching and non-teaching staff is classified among the top 200 universities in Europe (ref. Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015-2016) . It has strong links to the local and national and international community.
The RTD in solar cells in this university is concentrated at the Laboratory for Applied Physics (LAPS). This lab is involved in preparation, fabrication and characterization of second generation thin film solar cells. CdTe thin film solar cells with efficiencies exceeding 15% have been fabricated, also flexible solar cells deposited on polymer foils with more than 10% efficiency have been made. Other alternative materials for photovoltaics are also studied. SnS solar cells with 1.5% efficiency have been fabricated. The laboratory is equipped with many different vacuum deposition machines, and electrical and morphological characterization instruments.
