About SDU CAPE
At CAPE, we work with research and development within new types of organic and hybrid thin-film solar cells. This work includes new methods for improving efficiency, stability and upscaling of solar cell devices.
In recent years, there has been tremendous progress in development of organic solar cells that due to their appealing features such as low cost, mechanical flexibility, design freedom, green materials and low energy payback times are considered important candidates for the future energy market. New methods for improving both performance, reliability and device stability are constantly pursued, while roll-to-roll processing are utilised for up-scaling and mass production.
SDU CAPE – Centre for Advanced Photovoltaics and Thin-film Energy Devices was established in 2022 as part of the Mads Clausen Institute at The Faculty of Engineering at SDU.
At CAPE, we are doing research and development within new types of organic and hybrid thin-film solar cells. The work encompasses new ways to improve device efficiency, device stability and device upscaling. This includes research and development activities on:
- Energy materials and thin-films
- Advanced characterisation
- Upscaling of thin-films and devices
- Energy device development and testing
