JOANNEUM RESEARCH Forschungsgesellschaft mbH

We develop and optimise photonic structures that enable light to be used particularly efficiently. To be specific, we research anti-reflex structures, lighttrapping structures, volume optics, wave conductors and diffractive structures. A comprehensive range of equipment

encompasses the entire process chain, from design optics and optical simulation through to the production of corresponding photonic structures. Such structures can be used to increase efficiency in photovoltaic modules.
