Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique
CSEM in short
CSEM, Centre Suisse d'Electronique et de Microtechnique (Swiss Center for Electronics and Microtechnology), founded in 1984, is a private non-profit applied research and development center specializing in micro- and nanotechnology, systems engineering, photovoltaics, microelectronics, and communications technologies. It offers its customers and industry partners custom-made, innovative solutions based on its knowledge of the market and the technological expertise derived from applied research. The CSEM PV-center is an industry driven, application-oriented program within CSEM created to bring new high-tech solutions for solar components and systems to technological maturity and serve the global renewable energy industry. The PV-center is able to provide a full range of services to partners, ranging from technology development to product prototyping ncluding the realization of full-size demonstration systems. The infrastructure of the PV-center includes specialty systems for coating, patterning, printing, and fabrication processes, as well as pilot manufacturing lines - from glass cleaning and wafer etching up to the assembly of fully functional PV modules and systems
Main role and tasks in the project
CSEM and EPFL PVLAB act as one infrastructure for this project. CSEM will be active in WP7 and 8.
Key Persons involved in VIPERLAB project
Quentin Jeangros received his Ph.D. from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2014. After a postdoc on transparent conductive oxides (2015-2017), he was leading the activities linked to perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells at the Photovoltaics and Thin-Film Electronics Laboratory, EPFL (2018-2021). Since mid-2021, he has been coordinating the perovskite activities at CSEM. His research interests include the use of advanced electron microscopy techniques to provide new insights into energy materials such as photovoltaic devices.
Soo-Jin Moon received her Ph.D. degree from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2011. During her postdoc at EPFL (2012-2013), her research focused mainly on perovskite solar cells. Since 2013, she has been working at CSEM PV-Center. Her research interests include solar cells, energy devices and electrolytes, nanomaterials and structure, and energy storage devices.
Florent Sahli received a M.Sc degree in Chemical engineering from the from the Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland, in 2014. In 2020, he received the Ph.D. degree from the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne, Switzerland. His research mainly focused on the development of perovskite materials and their implementation in perovskite/silicon tandem devices. In 2021, he joined the Perovskite Materials & Devices sector at CSEM.
