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.
This webinar brings together leading UK 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:
· Welcome from event chair: Professor Neil Robertson (University of Edinburgh)
· “Flexible perovskite photovoltaics – interplay of organic and inorganic materials” Dr Konrad Wojciechowski (Scientific Director, Saule Technologies)
· “Interface engineering and defect passivation in perovskite photovoltaics by implementing organic components” Dr. Tayebeh Ameri (University of Edinburgh)
· “Photon multiplication for enhanced Si PV” Dr Akshay Rao (University of Cambridge; Chief Scientific Officer, Cambridge Photon Technology)
· “New organic materials for organic and dye sensitised solar cells” Professor Graeme Cooke (University of Glasgow)
· Panel Session with Q&A
