He has been a reviewer and session chairman for scientific conferences and workshops such as SiliconPV, European Photovoltaic Solar Energy Conference, Workshop on Metallization & Interconnection for Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells.
Markus Glatthaar studied Physics at the Eberhard-Karls-University in Tübingen,Germany. In 2007 he finished his Ph.D. at the University of Freiburg, Germany, in the field of organic solar cells. From 2008 to 2010, he worked as a postdoc at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems on the characterization of silicon solar cells, mainly on photoluminescence imaging methods. In 2011, he worked as a senior solar cell technologist at RENA GmbH, a renowned tool manufacturer in the solar industry. From 2012 on, he was head of the department at Fraunhofer ISE with a research focus on metallization technology for silicon solar cells. Currently, he is preparing to spin off from FraunhoferISE with a start-up company. His further research can be found here.
