PhD Student Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group


Institution: ICN2:Catalan Institute of Nanoscience and Nanotechnology
Contact e-mail: hr@icn2.cat
Published: August 4th, 2022.
Deadline: September 15th, 2022.
Brief Description:

Photovoltaic devices can directly convert sunlight into electricity, being an unlimited source of renewable energy. A way of maximizing the efficiency per unit area is by assembling in a tandem structure two or more semiconductors to absorb a broad range of the solar spectrum. This project aims to develop new materials with slightly wide bandgap with earth-abundant and non-toxic elements and combine them with narrow bandgap organic absorbers in tandem architectures. The new materials to be developed are based on metal halides type Rudorffites and double perovskites, which offer broad combinatorial possibilities to tune its properties. The candidate will work on the material development, the device assembly as well as investigating the nature of the physical bottlenecks limiting the tandem device performances. The project is coordinated by Prof. Monica Lira-Cantú (Group Leader) and Dr. Sonia R. Raga (Senior researcher) of the Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group.
