About This PhD Project

Project Description

This project will look at the technology required to achieve low cost and highly efficient PV perovskite solar cells. In particular the upscaling of the Atmospheric Pressure Chemical Vapour Deposition (APCVD) process to produce large scale thin films which make up the PV cell. This will involve modification of an existing APCVD process for deposition of the perovskite semiconductor. Analysis will be available from a wide range of thin film analysis techniques for morphological (TEM, SEM, AFM, XRD), optical spectroscopies, chemical composition (XPS, GDOES) and electrical. The study will involve systematically modifying deposition parameters and CVD coating technology to assess trends in film properties and optimum PV behaviour.

Eligibility

Candidates should have a first or upper second class honours degree in an area relevant to the subject. Candidates should have an interest in thin films deposition and materials characterisation. In all cases a Master’s degree or equivalent qualification or other evidence of research skills and experience is preferred but not essential.

Funding

Application where funding can be secured from other sources will be accepted at any time. For further information visit: http://www.salford.ac.uk/study/postgraduate/fees-and-funding/research-degree-fees-and-funding
