8th Metallization and Interconnection Workshop
For the 8th time, industry and academic experts and specialists from all over the world discussed the latest status, trends and new directions in the field of metallization and interconnection for crystalline silicon solar cells on May 13-14, 2019 in Konztanz, Germany. Some 165 global experts and specialists from industry and academic institutes reviewed the latest status, trends and new directions in the field of metallization and interconnection for crystalline silicon solar cells. Participants from 19 countries debated results of 28 oral and 11 poster presentations, participated in panel discussions, and contributed to a market place discussion on the basis of provocative statements. As always lots of room was available for discussions and networking during the two day program and social events including reception and workshop dinner.
The presentations are available on this website in pdf format. The peer reviewed papers, six in total, are available on the AIP Conference proceedings website (https://aip.scitation.org/toc/apc/2156/1). We thank the members of the scientific committee for the help with the peer-reviewing process.
A summary of the workshop content (https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5125866) is also included. After the 8th workshop, participants were asked to fill a survey about their views on the future of metallization and interconnection. Results of this 8th edition survey are given and discussed together with results from previous editions (https://doi.org/10.1063/1.5125867).
The organizers wish to thank again the sponsors and supporters for their contributions and for making this workshop possible.
