About

Dr. Thomas J.J. Meyer (born in Soulac, France, 1980) is a senior researcher at Teknova (Norway) specialized in novel photovoltaic concepts. With an academic background in both physics [1,2] and chemistry [3,4] Thomas worked on the development of a new type of concentrating solar cells where the concentrating flux of fluorescent light increases the efficiency of c-Si solar cells. His interests includes photon management using organic (fluorophores) or inorganic (quantum dots) compounds, ray tracing of optical system and light concentration. Commissioned in 2010 by the research council of Norway as a technical expert for the Eureka cluster Eurogia+ Thomas is regularly evaluating/promoting large energy projects (> 1 to 5 M Euros) dealing with low carbon technologies. Recently appointed (2011) research program manager for Vetro Solar AS (solar glass producer) Thomas is leading several research projects which aim to optimize the solar glass for the photovoltaic industry. His goal is to modify the properties of the glass cover so that it becomes an active component in the design of photovoltaic modules.
