Materials and Devices

The National Center for Photovoltaics (NCPV) at NREL develops photovoltaic (PV) materials and devices to achieve higher performance and reliability at lower cost and to enhance understanding of the chemistry behind the material growth and the physics behind the device operation.

Advanced Materials, Devices, and Concepts

We explore new PV materials using high-throughput combinatorial materials science approach followed by traditional targeted experiments
