Exploration of novel solar cell materials
Solar cells are extremly materials-sensitive technologies. Our Materials Exploration activites aim to discover new semiconductor materials for next-generation solar cells with ultra high efficiency, long term stability and competetive costs. Such materials could also lead to breakthroughs in other branches of optoelectronic technology from optical sensors and imagers to fiberoptic communications and LEDs. Our aim is to produce high-quality data and fundamental insights about new materials, so that scientists and engineers can begin to test and optimise them in new devices.
