The aim of the Norwegian laboratory for silicon-based solar cell technology  (Solarlab), is to coordinate and unify cutting-edge infrastructure into an "openlab facility" in Norway, combining facilities at UiO, SINTEF, IFE and NTNU.

We conduct "frontier research" for the entire PV-chain with the main focus on silicon production, crystallisation and wafering. By coordinating and unifying the infrastructure, Norwegian research groups and companies will more easily work together in a high-tech environment, gaining the in-depth knowledge base necessary to assume and maintain leading positions in the development of future PV technologies.

The node at the University of Oslo hosts two Transmission Electron Microscopes (TEM) that are part of the NORTEM national infrastructure. The instruments are fully equipped for structural, compositional and optoelectrical characterization of materials. We additionally have holders and systems for performing experiments at high and low temperatures, in-situ electrical biasing, and for studying in-operando solid-gas reactions.
