Can you coat flexible solar cells with a water resistent coating, at the speed of roll to roll processing? In 2013, DIFFER and Fujifilm Research joined forces in an Industrial Partnership Programme
to speed up this important step in the production of cheap, flexible solar cells. A dedicated DIFFER group
on Atmospheric Plasma Processing of Functional Films was set up that investigated the use of an energetic plasma environment to grow a high quality moisture barrier. With the succesful graduation of the group's three PhD students comes an end to this research line. The knowledge developed in the group will now be transfered to industrial partner Fujifilm Research.
