Organic Photovoltaics - Awards

Joshua Fragoso received again the award for the best pitch of the evening

2016: Joshua Fragoso's talk about "Organic Photovoltaics" won again the award "Best Pitch of the Evening" from the students club r2b-student of KIT.

Jens Czolk was awarded with the EU PVSEC Student Award for his oral presentation.

2016: At the 32nd European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibition (EU PVSEC) in Munich, Jens Czolk was awarded the EU PVSEC Student Award for his presentation "Highly Efficient, All-Solution Processed, Mechanically Flexible, Semi-Transparent Organic Solar Modules".

r2b-student awards Joshua Fragoso for the best pitch of the evening

2016: Joshua Fragoso received the award "Best Pitch of the Evening" for his short presentation about "Organic Photovoltaics" from the students club r2b-student of KIT. The young scientist was rewarded for his enthusiastic 180 seconds talk that gave an inspiring insight into his research topic.

Stefan Gärtner and Alexander Colsmann at Gips-Schüle award ceremony

2015: The Gips-Schüle Research Award was awarded to Stefan Gärtner and Alexander Colsmann from LTI and Bernd Baumstümmler from MJR Pharmjet for their scientific work on environmentally friendly nanoparticle dispersions for deposition of organic solar cells. Polymeric nanoparticle dispersion enable the deposition of organic semiconductor layers in large scale without using harmful halogenated solvents and therefore prevent these substances from ending up in environment. This work is funded by the German Ministry for Education and Research (BMBF) within the project UNICORN. The video produced for the award ceremony is also available online for further information (German only).

HfL awards for Adam Hochstuhl and Stefan Höfle for their Bachelor and Doctorial thesis

2015: The Society for Light Technology of the University of Kalrsruhe (HfL) dignified the Bachelor thesis of Adam Hochstuhl on "Spacial photo-current mapping of organic solar cells" and the Doctorial thesis of Stefan Höfle on "Solution processed organic tandem light emitting diodes".

Horiba Award for best oral presentation at XIV Brazil MRS Meeting

2015: At XIV Brazil MRS Meeting Daniel Bahro received the Horiba Award for the best oral presentation. The talk was about "Understanding the External Quantum Efficiency of Organic Homo-Tandem Solar Cells Utilizing a Three-Terminal Device Architecture".

ISFOE15 Young Researcher Award for Min Zhang

2015: Min Zhang got the Young Researcher Award at 8th International Symposium on Flexible Organic Electronics (ISFOE) 2015. She presented her work on semi-transparent organic light-emitting diodes (OLEDs).

26th EU PVSEC Poster Award for Andreas Pütz

2011: The poster by Andreas Pütz on "Indium Doped Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles as n-Doped Buffer Layer in Organic Solar Cells" was awarded in category "Advanced Photovoltaics: New Concepts and Ultra-High Efficiency" at 26th European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference and Exhibit.
