Overview

Research & Development; Material Synthesis and Characterization; Instrumental Analysis; Solar Cell Fabrication and analysis; Project Management

  • Understanding structure-property relationships as well as the development of materials for photovoltaics applications and study of synthesis-property-performance correlation control of the nanostructure of solid-state materials in the photovoltaic application.
  • Novel functional metal oxides and nanomaterials using precisely designed nanocrystals as building blocks and investigates their properties as function of their finely tunable nano-features. In this way, they are able to create a new generation of photovoltaic materials in which components, functionalities can defined in a predictable way, and produce elevated scope to advanced functional nanomaterials inclusion for photovoltaic research.
