Making Solar Cells using Microfabrication
2014 Summer Camp Flyer
Description: The Micro/Nano Technology Center is hosting a brand new summer camp for folks of all ages 14 and over to fabricate a solar cell in the premier $30 million cleanroom at the University of Louisville. Students will fabricate a solar cell with a 4" silicon wafer and the week will be packed full of learning the same microfabrication techniques used in silicon valley to make computer chips or integrated circuits. Additionally, students will learn the physics behind how a solar cell functions and can take home their solar cell wafer at the end of the camp, along with wafer tweezers, cleanroom notebook and shirt.
Minimum Age: 14
Max students/camp: 8
Duration: 1 week (Monday - Friday)
Hours: 9:00 am - 5:00 pm
Dates: Week 1, June 23rd – 27th; Week 2, July 7th - 11th
