Wilfried G.J.H.M. Van Sark graduated from Utrecht University, The Netherlands, with an M.S. degree in experimental physics in 1985, and M.S. thesis in measurement and analysis of I-V characteristics of c-Si cells. He received his Ph.D. degree in III-V solar cell development, modeling and processing, from Nijmegen University, The Netherlands. He then spent 7 years as a Postdoc/Senior Researcher at Utrecht University and specialized on a-Si:H cell deposition and analysis. He is an expert in plasma chemical vapour deposition, both rf and vvry-high frequency. After holding the position of Assistant Professor at Nijmegen University where he worked on III-V solar cells, he then returned to Utrecht University with a focus on (single molecule) confocal fluorescence microscopy of nanocrystals. In 2002, he moved to his present position as an Assistant Professor at the Research Group Science, Technology and Society (now Energy and Resources) of the Copernicus at Utrecht University, The Netherlands, where he performs and coordinates research on next generation photovoltaic devices incorporating nanocrystals, for example, luminescent solar concentrators, as well as photovoltaic performance, life cycle analysis, socioeconomics, and policy development. He is a Member of the Editorial Board of Elsevier’s Scientific Journal “Renewable Energy”, and a Member of various organizing committees of EU, IEEE, and SPIE PV conferences. He is author/coauthor of over 200 peer-reviewed journal and conference paper publications and book chapters. He has coedited three books.
