ODTÜ-GÜNAM Silicon Photovoltaic Technologies (SİPV) Unit is Turkey’s leading research and development group in the field of silicon-based photovoltaic solar cell technologies. SİPV unit has rich technical opportunities, especially the Photovoltaic Pilot Production Line (GPVL), which is the most comprehensive facility in our country and the region for the production of industrial-size solar cells. PERC/PERT/PERL, IBC, SHJ, Bifacial, and TopCon are primary research areas that increase productivity and improve processes in cell technologies. Research on domestic metal paste production and copper electroplating is also carried out under the roof of the unit.
