Wilhelm Warta studied Physics in Würzburg and Stuttgart and received his PhD from the University of Stuttgart in 1985. He then joined the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems, Freiburg, starting with research on excess carrier recombination in silicon. His research interests comprise development of characterization techniques and application for crystalline silicon materials and solar cells, silicon material properties and impact on solar cell performance, simulation of solar cells and cell processing as well as solar cell calibration with highest precision. At present, he is Department Head, Characterization and Simulation/CalLab in the Division Silicon Solar Cells – Development and Characterization.at the Fraunhofer ISE. He is author or co-author of more than 250 papers in reviewed journals and conferences.
