In addition, Dr. Welser will also be a Session Chair for the Session titled “New Concepts, Materials and Technologies for Future Photovoltaics” to be held on Wednesday, November 28, 2012.
Dr. Welser’s presentation discussed the use of advanced optical coatings of nanostructured transparent conductive oxide materials that can enhance photovoltaic device performance by minimizing reflection losses and increasing the optical path length within thin-film solar cells. He also discussed the use of nanostructured indium tin oxide (ITO) materials in antireflection structures with a step-graded refractive index design.
