A survey of those in the solar cell/photovoltaic device industry indicates distinct differences in testing methods and priorities among respondents from Asia, North America, and Europe. Different test priorities emerged not only geographically, but among those testing devices at early stages compared to production testing. The survey showed more R&D activity in thin film materials over silicon-based devices. Across all geographies, the survey showed the industry is focused on improving device efficiencies as the dominant development priority. Read this paper to learn more.
