Vincent Barrioz is interested in the research and development of innovative and low cost photovoltaic devices. He has led the effort to transfer the deposition of high efficiency thin film PV at atmospheric pressure from research scale to an inline process. He is also involved with the system integration of PV to meet the energy demand at building and community scales.
