Unique Roll-To-Roll Manufacturing Pilot Line With Laser Patterning And In-Line Optical Metrology For Quality Control For OPVs Mass Production
17:30 - 17:55
We present the innovative approach for large scale manufacturing of flexible Organic Photovoltaics (OPVs) by a unique Roll-to-Roll printing pilot line equipped with novel in-line optical metrology tools and methodologies (Spectroscopic Ellipsometry and Raman Spectroscopy) for quality control and robust ultra-fast pulsed laser for precision patterning of advanced OPV architectures.
Speaker Biography (Argiris Laskarakis)
Dr. A. Laskarakis is the Head of the Organic Electronics Group of the Nanotechnology Lab LTFN & Center for Organic and Printed Electronics of Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece.
He is specialist in the fabrication of flexible organic electronics nanomaterials (organic semiconductors, transparent electrodes, barriers for encapsulation, flexible substrates) and devices (e.g. organic photovoltaics, organic thin film transistors) by vacuum and printing methods. Also he is expert in optical metrology of inorganic, organic and hybrid nanostructured materials by IR-Vis-fUV Spectroscopic Ellipsometry, and Raman Spectroscopy as well as on the computational modelling of optical properties of inorganic-organic-hybrid thin films.
His work includes more than 56 peer-reviewed publications in International Scientific Journals, 3 book chapters, more than 70 presentations in International Scientific Conferences, and since 1998 he has particiapted in more than 14 EU funded R&D projects. Finally, for the past 9 years he is responsible for the organization of the International Symposium on Flexible Organic Electronics (ISFOE).
