The 5th International Workshop on Science and Technology of Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells (CSSC-5) was held in Boston, USA from Nov 1–3, 2011. The workshop gathered 133 specialists in physics, material science, and technology of crystalline silicon solar cells from 15 countries. The workshop focus was:

  • Scalable, low-cost Si feedstock technologies
  • Crystallization of Si films, wafers, and ingots
  • Laser- and zone-recrystallization
  • Kerfless wafering and thin Si wafers
  • Structure control / defect engineering
  • Connections between above topics and cell performance

  • We thank our sponsors: U.S. Department of Energy; Chesonis Family Foundation; MIT International Science & Technology Initiatives; 1366 Technologies; Sinton Instruments; MIT Energy Initiative; and the MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering.

    The next workshop will be held in France in November 2012, and will be chaired by Anis Jouini.
