Advent - Organic Electronic Materials
Solar cells will become a dominant energy source of the future. Important photovoltaic (PV) technologies are crystalline silicon cells (c-Si), thin-film solar cells (TFPV), dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSC) and organic photovoltaic cells (OPV). All these solar cell types compete with respect to their ability to improve energy efficiency and continuously lower production costs. Advent is promoting this development by supplying innovative, easy-to-use materials and formulations for next-generation solar cells - products which enable our customers to improve cell performance and to save costs in cell manufacturing. Advent focuses on novel materials, formulations and process chemicals for both printing and chemical coating technologies used in solar cell manufacture.
ADVENT Technologies supports corporate and university researchers with a variety of high performance organic semiconductors which are available for laboratory evaluation and research purposes via custom synthesis.
The conjugated polymers can be applied in:
- Single solar cells
- Tandem solar cells
- Dye-sensitized solar cells
- Field Effect Transistors
- Medium & Low-bandgap conjugated polymers
- Custom synthesis of polymers
