Event: 21 Apr 2017 - 10:00 AM - 21 Apr 2017 11:00 AM

Venue : Kinesis Building, Seminar Room 1, Level 5

Recently, lead halide perovskite materials (APbX,A= MA, FA etc. and X=I, Br, Cl) attracted extensive research interests due to their excellent performance in photovoltaics applications. In just seven years, the highest perovskite solar cell (PSC) efficiency reached 22.1%, comparable to the performance of silicon based solar cells. The outstanding performance of PSC can be attributed to the unique properties including large absorption coefficient, small exciton binding energy and long diffusion length. However, the interfaces of perovskite, which is crucial for the PSC device are found not optimized. The speaker of this seminar will be sharing his research on interfacial energy alignments and the research efforts made to improve them.
