Prof. Dr. Christophe Ballif

EPFL, Neuchâtel, Switzerland

Christophe Ballif received his Ph.D. degree in physics from EPFL, Switzerland, in 1998. After Stays at NREL, Fraunhofer ISE and EMPA, he became in 2004 Full Professor with the Institute of microengineering, University of Neuchâtel, Switzerland, directing the Photovoltaics and Thin-Film Electronics Laboratory, now part of EPFL. Since 2013, he has also been the Director of the PV-Center within CSEM, Neuchâtel, an RTO specialized in industrial research and technology transfer. His research interests include materials for PV, high-efficiency c-Si solar cells and multijunction, module technology, BIPV, and Energy systems. He received the Becquerel award in 2016.
