6th User Forum Thin-Film Photovoltaics - OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies (Ed.)

About the book:

The OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies, organized the 6th User Forum Thin-Film Photovoltaics in Würzburg, Germany, from 9th until 10th of February 2010. The OTTI e.V., Renewable Energies, belongs to the most respected organizers of symposia, seminares and conferences within the area of renewable energies. The actual proceedings include very interesting manuscripts and poster-presentations. The Chairman of the Forum was Prof. Dr. Bernd Rech, Helmholtz-Zentrum für Materialien, Berlin, Germany. For it is rather difficult to give a summary of all single contributions, we here only present the main points:
