Name of Task Force (TF): PV Electrical & Optical Properties Measurements Task Force

Global Technical Committee: Photovoltaic (PV) - Materials
Originating Technical Committee Region: North America

1. Charter: (State the objective of the proposed TF.)
Develop standards for measuring electrical and optical properties of PV materials that become an integral part of a PV “device” e.g. cells, modules, etc.
2. Scope: (Define the specific activities that the TF will conduct.)
Examples of such PV material include, but are not limited to: substrates, TCO films, optical enhancement films, conductive interconnect, insulator materials, absorber films, PVB, EVA, backsheet, sputtering targets, starting material e.g. UMG Si, Poly-Si, etc.

Specifically excluded are: Minority Carrier Lifetime, and Bulk Chemicals, Gases and Water, as these are already addressed in separate TFs.

3. Formal linkages with TFs in other Regions/Locales: (Show each associated TF and its parent global technical committee; indicate nature of relationship – global TF, observer TF, etc.)
Europe – PV Silicon Materials TF (observer TF)
Japan - PV Materials TF

4. Formation Date:(TF formed on)
