Electrical characterization of flexible solar cell materials (3 or 6-unit project) Student ID:16212185, 15217647

 

Solar cells absorb photons in the visible range and convert them into electricity. Traditionally, solar cells are constructed from semiconducting silicon. Such solar cells are generally bulky and inflexible. Novel solar cell materials are now emerging to achieve portability and flexibility. Some examples are plastic solar cells or perovskite solar cells. To improve the performance of these solar cell materials, their electrical properties must be measured reliably. This project will employ one or more electrical characterization techniques (e.g. capacitance or transistor method) to measure the conductivities of plastic-based solar cell materials. Students will learn different experimental and engineering skills, including sample fabrication, optical and electrical characterization, and some device modeling.

This project can take 1-2 students.


Optoelectronic study of perovskite materials (3 or 6-unit project) Student ID:15226034

 

Perovskite (PVSK) materials are an exciting class of semiconducting materials. They are now being actively pursued for high efficiency solar cell applications and power conversion efficiencies are approaching 20%. This project will look into means of fabricating PVSK thin films using a solution processable approach, and potential applications of these film for thin film transistors. Students will learn different experimental and engineering skills, including sample fabrication, optical and electrical characterization, and some device modeling.

This project can take 1-2 students.
