Dr. M.R. Vogt



Malte Ruben Vogt studied physics at the Leibniz University of Hannover, Germany. In 2009 he received his bachelor degree investigating interferometers with polarizing optics in his thesis. He received his master degree investigating plasmonic nanoparticles for solar cells in his thesis and joined the simulation team at ISFH in 2011. Afterwards he focused on  the optical characterization of solar cell module components and the simulation of optical and thermal behavior of PV modules in the field. In 2015 he finished his Dr. rer. nat. thesis titled, "Development of Physical Models for the Simulation of Optical Properties of Solar Cell Modules" at Leibniz University of Hannover.  
As a PostDoc at ISFH, he investigated the impact of spectrally resolved albdeo on the yield of bifacial PV Modules. Afterwards, he created the www.daidalos-cloud.de web interface for ray tracing of PV modules as well as cells. Additionally he used this ray tracer to investigate cell to module losses and demonstrate how to improve PV module optics to the the point where a PV modules efficiency is higher than the efficiency of its' cells. He also coordinates the inter-laboratory IEC61853-3 comparison round focused on establishing a best practice implementation.  
In March 2020, joined the Photovoltaic Materials and Devices group at TU Delft to lead their efforts in the Horizon 2020 project BobTandem.
