New Generation Photovoltaics for Space

On line: 21st-22nd June 2022


Compared with the terrestrial environment, the cosmic space environment is characterized by ultra-high vacuum, extreme temperatures and also exposure to several high-energy charged particles and rays.

In line with the fast-growing space economy, new generation of photovoltaic systems e.g., perovskite solar cells and multi-junction thin film PVs have been shown a great potential for compete with conventional PV systems in the space applications due to high efficiency in ultra-low-cost devices, low energy payback time, solution-process and roll-to-roll fabrication, high specific power and intrinsic stability against high energy particles and rays.

The scope of this  conference is to gather international experts in the new generation photovoltaics such as perovskite, organic PV or tandem between new generation and conventional PV, to have a fresh update on the development in the field and to define new opportunities of new generation PV in space applications  such as satellite powering but also new space developments such as extraterrestrial bases, deployable flexible PV arrays, inflatable solar cells etc.

The conference would also focus on space relevant tests of new PV technologies as well as the first experimental demonstration on the space environment.
