By Dr. Marko Turek, Dr. Marko Turek studied physics at the Dresden University and received his PhD in the field of condensed matter theory at the University of Regensburg. At Fraunhofer Center for Silicon Photovoltaics (CSP) he leads the team for the electrical characterisation of solar cells.
Module degradation | Light-induced degradation has long been recognised for its negative effects on the performance of crystalline silicon solar cells. Researchers from Fraunhofer CSP explain
how with the advent of advanced materials and cell technologies such as PERC, new tests and standards are required to minimise the impact of the phenomenon on plant reliability.
