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.
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".
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.
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).
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".
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.
