CREST student, Luksa Kujovic with Dr Gang Xiong, the Director of First Solar’s California Technology Center.

CREST is proud of collaborations with its industrial partners. First Solar is the world’s leading company in second generation, thin film photovoltaics.

The company has over 30GW of its modules installed worldwide, mainly at utility scale.  CREST is working on an EPSRC funded project with the CSER group of Swansea University to develop new n-type buffer layers for thin film CdSeTe/CdTe devices.  Luksa was seconded to First Solar and is achieving exciting results with new n-type emitters developed at Loughborough.
