Solar cell researcher Charlotte Platzer Björkman sees a bright future ahead when it comes to solar energy. In her research, she develops thin film solar cells that use less material and energy in production than conventional solar cells. She is also looking for new solar cell materials that are inexpensive, environmentally friendly and highly available. New materials can lead to new applications, allowing even larger use of solar cells to meet global electricity demands. Nevertheless, as a researcher it can be difficult to know when you have an idea that can be commercialised. Collaboration with industry is a way to create an understanding of challenges and needs, as well as identifying opportunities for students.
