The CSIR-CECRI pleased to announce the "School and Hands-on Training on Photovoltaics for Solar Energy Harvesting", in association with SAEST, Karaikudi. Three days (18th - 20th September 2017) tutorial course and practical classes will be conducted by one of the pioneer in photovoltaic scientist Prof. Kuppuswamy Kalyanasundaram, EPFL, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Laussane, Switzerland, who is working with the father of dye-sensitized solar cells, Prof. Michael Grätzel. The main objective of this school is to disseminate knowledge and introduce the principles of solar energy harvesting through photovoltaic technology to young scholars and researchers. In addition to formal lectures, there will be opportunities for the workshop participants to examine closely various solar powering devices for portable electronics, home powering and BOS components; also few Do-it-yourself exercises on powering rechargeable batteries, mobile phones and LED lamps using solar cells.
