Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic materials, Henan University
“Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Materials” was approved by Henan Provincial Science and Technology Department in November, 2008, which consists of Henan University and Henan Normal University (Yu Tech.  no. 6). The plan for construction task passed the feasibility study of expert panel organized by Henan Provincial Science and Technology Department on February 28, 2009. The construction time is 3-5 years. In May, 2015, the laboratory passed the examination of Henan Provincial Science and Technology Department, a number of indicators meeting and exceeding the original requirements.
Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Materials, Henan University, during the construction, obtains construction fund about 40 million yuan. More than 30 large scientific instruments and small laboratory equipment have been purchased, such as, Ultra high Vacuum Scanning Tunneling Microscope (Unisoku USM-11T-400mk), Ultrahigh vacuum scanning tunneling microscope - molecular beam epitaxy system (Omicron LT STM-AFM), Ultra high Vacuum Scanning Tunneling Microscope (CreaTec LT STM), Atomic Force Microscopy (AR MFP-3D-Infinity), Solar Cell Test System, Pulsed Laser Deposition Equipment, Physical Property Measurement System (PPMS), X-fluorescence spectrometer, Laser Cutting Machine, Plasma Enhanced Chemical Vapor Deposition (PECVD), German Vacuum Glove Box, Double Chamber Thermal Evaporation System, Field Emission Scanning Electron Microscope (FESEM), Deep Level Transient Spectroscopy, etc. 1000-Class Super Clean Room about 280 m2 and Chemical Room about 240 m2 were built. As far, our laboratory has large and medium-sized equipment about 50 million yuan and 3000 m2 scientific research room with comparative centralized layout. Making use of the construction fund about 40 million yuan, the purchase of instruments and the reform of laboratory base had been over fulfilled. The construction fund, technical support and logistic service improve the research infrastructure and research platform conditions to enhance the development of the laboratory.
In October, 2013, national advanced seminar about “Research on Photovoltaic New Materials and Practice and Development of Photovoltaic Industry” had been held in the laboratory. Domestic and foreign experts and scholars, for example, Wenjing Wang (member of China Renewable Energy Society council, member of China Renewable Energy Society photovoltaic Specialized Committee), Zhishan Bo (National Foundation Award for Outstanding Young Scientists Fund, Chief expert of national key basic research development program (973), Beijing Normal University Professor), Cong Wang (Director of China Energy Society, chief expert of 863 project, Beijing University of Aeronautics and Astronautics Professor), Chuan Gao (President and CEO of Silicon Valley Optical Technologies Inc., senior engineer) et al. were invited for academic exchange in the laboratory. More than 100 people attended the important international and domestic photovoltaic Conferences. More than 30 domestic and foreign experts were invited to visit the laboratory, expanding the international and domestic radiation effects of the laboratory through multiple channels
After the 5-year construction, Henan Key Laboratory of Photovoltaic Materials, Henan University, has begun to take shape, achieving preliminary results, over fulfilling the each indicator in construction plan. Every construction tasks in plan have been fulfilled or over fulfilled to undertake the tasks of national and provincial research projects.
