Dr. Bertrand Fillon
Dr. Bertrand Fillon is currently the European VP of CEA/ LITEN for new energy technologies (fuel cells, batteries, photovoltaic cells,…), and micro-nanotechnologies for new energy applications and organic electronics. He defines, organizes and follows the CEA/ LITEN international project portfolio. He is the scientific president of the French polymer cluster “Plastipolis”. He has been the initiator of the polymer platform involving the different CEA research teams and foreign Swiss laboratories CSEM. Between 1990-2003, he worked with Pechiney Packaging. For the Pechiney Group, he was the coordinator of the Global Packaging R&D activities between the four business units (flexible packaging, bottles, tubes, high tech. cosmetics). He was the leader of the Pechiney polymer expert group. Dr. Fillon was the Pechiney representative in IRI (Industrial Research Institut).
Prior to joining Pechiney, Dr. Fillon worked in Orkem as a research engineer of polymer extrusion. He has a number of technical publications and also patents in the field of packaging, extrusion, injection and printing processes.
Nanomaterial and printed technologies for new energy applications
Today, more and more nanotechnologies are used to produce PV cells, batteries, printed batteries, fuel cells. The process is many times based on deposition techniques (printed or vacuum deposition) with a goal of tracking the best performances and reliability. This presentation will introduce the benefits to be expected from the development of nanotechnologies for new energy applications. The goal is to produce cheap energy component where multi-components are requested and the core components (eg: silicon for solar cell) are not necessary. Recent advances in the production of organic and non-organic solar cells will be discussed and compared.Nanomaterial and printed technologies for new energy applications
