PhD Scholarship in Hybrid Organic/Inorganic Nanoparticles for Luminescent Solar Concentrators

Project Description

This scholarship is for students with a strong chemistry and potentially physics background with an interest in the development of new optically active materials for renewable energy systems. The students will:

-combine organic and inorganic chromophores into hybrid organic/inorganic light - harvesting chromophores.
-create large superstructures of hybrid chromophores through simple coupling reactions.
-create large superstructures of hybrid chromophores through simple coupling reactions.
-study the fundamental photo-physical interactions between different components within our system; this could be organic-organic, organic--inorganic and inorganic-inorganic interactions.
-optimise the energy transfer interactions between our components, ensuring efficient energy transfer leading to the creation of hybrid chromophore structures with minimal reabsorption.
-incorporate these chromophores into functioning state-of-the-art LSCs.

Funding Notes

This PhD Scholarship is funded by the Science for Technological Innovation National Science Challenge, a multi-million dollar Government investment whose mission is to grow a high-tech New Zealand economy via the physical sciences and engineering.

The project aims to create a new generation of hybrid organic/inorganic light-harvesting chromophores with minimal reabsorption losses for luminescent solar concentrators. This project will investigate the chemical and physical interactions between linked organic and inorganic chromophores. These systems will have a wide range of applications across optoelectronics and offer the potential to change the future energy landscape of New Zealand.
