PV researchers Frank Feldmann, Dr. Udo Roemer receive SolarWorld Junior Einstein award 2016

For the eleventh year in a row, SolarWorld’s prestigious Junior Einstein Award has been awarded to excellent young scientists and engineers. At the award ceremony, which took place during the Intersolar Europe in Munich on June 22nd , 2016, the German solar PV company presented this year’s award to two young scientists. Dr. Frank Feldmann of the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE and his scientific colleague Dr. Udo Roemer of the Institute for Solar Energy Research in Hameln. The jury of the international competition honored both solar researchers for their groundbreaking work on passivated contacts, which enables considerably higher silicon solar cell efficiencies. World record solar efficiency of 25.1 percent In his doctoral thesis, Frank Feldmann laid the foundation for a new world record efficiency of 25.1 percent for both sides-contacted silicon solar c...
