CIEMAT has participated in the XVI Edition of the National Congress of Materials (CNMAT22), has been held in the city of Ciudad Real, with research paper: STRUCTURAL, OPTICAL AND ELECTRICAL PROPERTIES OF THIN FILMS OF TRANSPARENT CONDUCTING OXIDES OBTAINED BY CHEMICAL METHOD

In this work, AZO thin films have been prepared by the sol-gel technique using different zinc precursors and different deposition methods (spin coating (SC) and dip coating (DC)), observing the differences between the films obtained. In the same way, a study has been carried out on how it affects the subsequent thermal treatment of said films.


CIEMAT has participated in the XIX Meeting of the Specialized Group on Inorganic Chemistry XIII and the Meeting of the Specialized Group on Solid State Chemistry (QIES22), with two research papers, funded by the SCALED Project.

The studies are based on the use of zinc oxide (ZnO), as a selective contact of electrons in the manufacture of solar cells, which is why they were synthesized from low-temperature and low-cost deposition methods such as chemical bath (CBD ) and by the spin coating technique

CIEMAT     15-10-2021

CIEMAT and the Universidad Autónoma de Madrid (UAM) collaborate in the manufacture of lithium-ion batteries within the framework of the SCALED project,

The DSD group (Deposited Silicon Devices), belonging to the Photovoltaic Solar Energy Unit of the Department of Energy (CIEMAT), and the Department of Applied Physics of the Autonomous University of Madrid (UAM), collaborate closely in the fabrication and characterization of Lithium-ion batteries, by using amorphous silicon anodes deposited by the PECVD (Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapour Deposition) technique, as part of the research activities planned in the SCALED project.
