PV Technical Poster Wins Award at National Conference

JUNE 24, 2011 — Ferro Electronic Materials’ technical presentation poster was selected for the Best Poster Award at the 37th IEEE Photovoltaic Specialist Conference (PVSC) held this week in Seattle, WA. The winning poster, “Screen Printed Reflector Pastes for Back Passivated Crystalline Silicon Solar Cells,” was one of three technical posters Corky Thacker Communications produced for Ferro for the conference, along with exhibition booth graphics.

“The award is for the technical merits of the research,” agency president Corky Thacker explains. “But technical posters must meet precise mechanical and design specifications set by each conference, while clearly presenting the information in an easy-to-comprehend manner that showcases the excellence of a novel technology.”
