Webinar on Organic Photovoltaic Materials Opportunities
(Nanowerk News) NanoMarkets, an industry analyst firm, today announced that it will be conducting a webinar titled, Organic Photovoltaic Materials Opportunities that will take place on Tuesday, March 17th at 10:00 EST. Details of the event follow below. Persons interested in registering for the event may do so on the NanoMarkets website at www.nanomarkets.net .
An early registration rate is being offered through March 10th. About the Event:
Organic Photovoltaic Materials Opportunities
The current photovoltaic (PV) market is dominated by crystalline silicon products. So-called "second generation" thin-film inorganic PV products are poised to take market share from the incumbent technology. But "third generation" technology has captured the attention of many companies, large and small, around the world, because it holds the promise of inexpensive devices with sufficient efficiency produced using low-cost roll-to-roll manufacturing processes.
The Webinar will cover some of the key issues in the OPV and DSC materials markets, and provides roadmap and revenue estimates for this interesting electronic material. The information and analysis for this Webinar are sourced from NanoMarkets' ongoing industry analysis and especially from the NanoMarkets new market study on OPV and DSC materials that will be released in February 2009.
Among the topics that this Webinar will include:
The current status of commercialization of OPV and DSC, and its impact on the materials markets
A discussion of the prototypical architectures for OPV, DSC, and small molecule bulk heterojunction devices
An overview of the typical materials used in OPV and DSC stacks, as well as some of the likely candidates for alternative materials, including substrates, active layer materials, electrodes, and encapsulation
NanoMarkets' forecasts for OPV and DSC production and related materials
A recording of the event with presentation materials will also be made available on CD ROM.
About the Report
NanoMarkets' report, Organic Photovoltaic Materials Markets analyzes and quantifies the markets for OPV materials. The report addresses both "pure" OPV and hybrid approaches. Coverage includes the latest R&D and commercialization efforts in the area of electrodes, encapsulation and substrates, as well as the core absorber layers. This report also discusses the products and strategies of the key players. Companies discussed include both firms that are specifically focused on OPV materials and those that focus on the panels area, but have strong IP in the materials space. The report also provides a roadmap for improvements in OPV lifetimes, materials prices, efficiencies and other factors.
