Design and fabrication of energy scavenging thin film materials

For many decades crystalline silicon solar cells have dominated the solar market. But, this dominance may now be challenged with the emergence of perovskite solar cells as well as organic solar cells which are performing in excess of 15%. Read more

A 3-year PhD studentship in the Next Generation of Eco-friendly and high-performance Solar Cells

Applications are invited for a 3-year funded PhD studentship to join the Functional Materials and Optoelectronic Device group led by Dr Mojtaba Abdi-Jalebi at the Institute for Materials Discovery (. Read more

New materials for solar cells

We have a vacancy for a PhD student to work on the synthesis and characterisation of new materials for solar cells. Hybrid lead halide perovskites are attracting considerable interest due to their potential as photovoltaic materials for solar cells with very high efficiencies. Read more

Defect engineering in silicon solar cells

Would you like to work in a world-class research team, in a well-equipped state-of-the-art research laboratory, and on one of the most important topics facing us in the 21st century? Come to join us at the Solar Photovoltaics (PV) Group at the Australian National University (ANU). Read more

Developing advanced solar cells through machine learning, device physics, engineering and mathematical simulation

The EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training (CDT) in Renewable Energy Northeast Universities (ReNU) is a collaborative doctoral training programme run by the Universities of Northumbria, Newcastle and Durham. Read more

Solar Cells for Space and Smart Applications

The PhD research activity is related to the development of solar cells for space and smart applications. Power is critical for space missions and Internet of Things (IoT) networks. Read more

Carrier lifetimes in silicon solar cells measured by muon spin spectroscopy

Photovoltaic installations have recently reached the terawatt level and this is almost entirely due to the success of silicon-based solar cell technologies. Read more

Stability and efficiency improvement of perovskite solar cells by controlling synthesis and deposition processing parameters

Organic–inorganic hybrid metal halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have gained extensive research interest in the last decade due to their low-cost fabrication, excellent optoelectronic properties, and rapid increase in power conversion efficiency. Read more

Hybrid Energy Harvester Based on Colloidal Quantum Dot Solar Cells and Triboelectric Nanogenerator

  Research Group: Condensed Matter and Photonics
Recent advances in energy harvesting using photovoltaic and triboelectric effects demonstrate outstanding performances of energy harvesters as power supplies. Read more

Automated Solar Cells Crack Detection using AI techniques

  Research Group: Intelligent Systems and Nanoscience
The accurate detection and quantification of cracks and defects in structures such as solar cells are essential to allow owners and operators of these high-value assets to understand and quantify their condition. Read more

Photosensitisation of silicon using molecular layers

Background. Currently silicon solar cells are used in approximately 90% of the world photovoltaic (PV) production with the highly crystalline material used to constitute a significant cost of the final PV module price. Read more

PhD in flexible perovskite photovoltaics

Do you want to be part of the coming solar revolution? This PhD is perfect for you!. Metal halide perovskites have emerged as a new class of semiconductor having important applications in next generation solar-cells. Read more

Routes to stable organic solar cell

Organic solar cells have seen a huge resurgence since the replacement of fullerene acceptors by non-fullerene acceptors (NFA’s). With a whole zoo of different NFA’s, these have seen the power conversion efficiency reach dizzying new records. Read more
