Dr Senthilarasu Sundaram

Lecturer in Renewable Energy

Profile

My research focus is on third generation Photovoltaics involving different technologies, as well as on the applications of nano structured oxide materials and developing flexible solar cells on metal and polymer foils. In addition, I am concentrating on fundamental scientific studies of new materials, thin films and low-cost device concepts.

I am also a member of the Renewable Energy department in the College of Engineering, Mathematics and Physical Sciences.

You can find out more by watching a two-minute video of me explaining my work.

Research interests

  • New materials for dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSCs)
  • Perovskite solid state solar cells
  • Thin film based building integrated PV
  • Manufacturability of DSSCs in cooperation with industry in up-scaling them
