Designing new transparent conductive electrodes for flexible perovskite solar cells (2018–2021)

Abstract:
This project aims to develop a new class of low-cost flexible perovskite solar cells based on the proposed ITO-free transparent conductive film. Specifically, the research will design a new generation of transparent conductive electrodes by integrating electrochemically exfoliated graphene with metal nanowires and introducing graphene oxide based hole-transporting layer into the perovskite device to achieve high energy conversion efficiency and mechanical stability. Expected outcomes include high-performance flexible solar cells and new knowledge generated from the investigation of charge transfer in the new system, which will lead to further innovative technologies in efficient energy conversion systems and flexible optoelectronics.
