Become an actor of the Energy Transition by joining a team driven by innovation and impact to address today’s most decisive challenges.
IPVF – Institut Photovoltaïque d’Île-de-France, is a global Research, Innovation and Education center, which mission is to accelerate energy transition through science & technology.
Gathering industrial PV leaders (EDF, Total, Air Liquide, Horiba and Riber) and world-renowned academic research teams (CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique), multi-disciplinary and international IPVF teams conduct research for clean energy technologies.
Supported by the French State, IPVF is labelled Institute for Energy Transition (ITE).
IPVF at a glance:
IPVF has launched the Program VI – PROOF to explore breakthrough approaches for future photovoltaic innovations. Within PROOF, the MAP project aims at developing new functional materials to reduce the risks associated with materials and processes. Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD) has been selected as the method of choice to address these challenges, by coordinated efforts in molecular chemistry, surface chemistry, material science, modelisation and instrumentation. HORIBA has pioneered the SNIPER system, a new optical spectroscopy characterization tool with unique capabilities in terms of time and spatial resolution. Its specificities are well adapted to develop the new generation of in-situ characterization system for ALD. The post-doctoral researcher will benefit from IPVF and HORIBA expertise and unique capabilities in ALD and spectroscopy.
