In recent years Organic Photovoltaics have shown a tremendous growth, achieving efficiencies surpassing 13%. However, the road to commercialization and large-scale deployment for this technology is still paved with challenges, leading to substantial losses in up-scaled modules.
In his talk, Luca will focus on the key requirements allowing to select a material from the early synthesis to the up-scaling phase, discussing the work behind the successful development of formulations for printed OPV. He will then give an insight on the R&D work done at Merck Labs and show recent advances and perspectives of this exciting thin film PV technology.
