Since September 2019 Solmates is part of the RVO Solar ERA NET CUSTCO project. The Cost-efficient, Up-scalable and Stable Transparent Conductive Oxides (CUSTCO) group of academic partners include Fraunhofer ISE, the University of Twente, and CNRS LPICM-Ecole Polytechnique.
As a first milestone a new PLD system has been delivered to the MESA+ Institute for Nanotechnology of the University of Twente. This PLD system will be used for material evaluations for photovoltaics.
