Abstract/Summary:


Instituto Tecnológico y de Energías Renovables, S.A. (ITER) continues to research on ways to optimize standard manufacturing processes for photovoltaic devices, taking the advantage of the acquired core competences, as well as the available facilities such as the solar cell laboratory, in order to extend its capabilities over solar cells based on perovskite structures, due to its growing trend in photo conversion efficiency in the last five years. Thus, efforts were focused on extending the know-how on hot and emerging topics such as perovskite solar devices, so as to reduce the inherent costs by using the in house equipment as much as possible. A perovskite state of art assessment, as well as a market study, was performed in order to estimate the cost for adopting a device architecture type, together with its fabrication ones, by taking into account the modification of the already available equipment, the acquisition of essential ones, as well as the required fungible. Experimental procedures were performed aiming to evaluate the degree of adaptation of the laboratory from the fabrication to the characterization of the fully finished devices.
