BiographyFelix Predan was born on the 15.07.1987 in Nuertingen, Germany. After finishing high-school in 2008, Felix Predan studied Micro System Engineering at the University of Freiburg, obtaining a Master of Science degree in 2014.
Beside his studies, Felix Predan worked since 2011 at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE in different fields of solar cell research, like laser doping for industrial solar cells based on silicon as well as on process technology for the micro-structuring of multi-junction solar cells.
In the year 2014, Felix Predan did his master thesis in the development of a surface-activated wafer bonding (SAB) process for antimonides.
Since 2015, Felix Predan makes a Ph.D., supported by a scholarship from the German Federal Environmental Foundation, DBU. The aim of his research is the development of a novel four-junction solar cell based on GaSb utilizing the SAB approach. This cell has prospects to reach highest conversion efficiencies > 50 % and could be applied in the concentrating photovoltaics or in space.
