New Horizons in Photovoltaic Technologies Using Organic Materials II

February 16 @ 10:00 am - 12:30 pm GMT


Comprising earth-abundant elements and with the potential to be printed from solution, organic materials offer many exciting possibilities in the development of next generation PV, and may be particularly suited to BIPV, flexible PV and low-light applications.

Significant strides have been made over recent years in efficiencies of organic photovoltaic solar cells using both molecular and polymeric absorbers, but organic materials can play other vital roles as part of the components that make up a solar cell.

Following on from the successful first event in this series in 2021, this webinar brings together leading researchers in organic materials for PV to showcase recent developments and future trends. The webinar will include a panel session and opportunity to put questions to the speakers.


The event schedule is announced as follows:
