Interfacial nanoengineering of electrodes for perovskite solar cells (2018–2021)

Abstract:
This project aims to explore new strategies of functional electrode design and interfacial engineering for efficient and stable perovskite solar cell application. The key concept is to modify the electron transport and perovskite layers through structural design, interfacial engineering and contact passivation, for use in high-performance solar-to-electricity conversion system with improved light harvesting and charge collection. The relationships between material synthesis conditions, interface modification, device structure, and photovoltaic performance will be established. Expected project outcomes will place Australia at the forefront of practical low-cost and large scale solar energy conversion technologies.
