Dr. Loic Tous is leading the PV Cell and Module activities at imec since early 2020. He received his Ph. D. degree in 2014 with from the KU Leuven (Belgium) for his research on plated metallization of industrial high-efficiency c-Si solar cells. Between 2014 and 2020, his research focused on integration, metallization, and interconnection of advanced PERC/PERT silicon solar cells. Since 2016, he is the co-organizer of the Workshop on Metallization & Interconnection for Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells. Since 2019, he is also the coordinator of the H2020 funded project HighLite (Grant Agreement no 857793) which includes 18 partners from industry and academia. His research interests include cell metallization, interconnection, and advanced module designs.
