Applied recruits Nanosolarís chief scientist and CIGS PV expert Eberspacher to lead solar R&D

Abstract:
Process equipment maker Applied Materials Inc of Santa Clara, CA, USA says that Dr Chris Eberspacher has joined its Solar Business Group to head its advanced R&D programs. Reporting to the group's chief technology officer, Dr Winfried Hoffmann, he will lead efforts for both silicon and non-silicon based solar materials.

Eberspacher has a doctorate degree in applied physics from Stanford University and 25 years of experience in solar development. He began his career at California-based ARCO Solar Inc (which later became Siemens Solar Industries, and now Shell Solar), where he led development teams in crystalline silicon and thin-film solar cell technologies. Most recently, Eberspacher made pioneering contributions to nanoparticle-based thin-film copper indium gallium diselenide (CIGS) solar cell technology at Unisun of Camarillo, CA (which he founded in 1993) and then Nanosolar Inc of Palo Alto, CA, a solar start-up focused on roll-to-roll processing of thin-film photovoltaic (PV) products, where he was lately chief scientist.
