Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Device Group

Group Leaders:

The Photovoltaic and Optoelectronic Device group is part of the sub-department of Condensed Matter Physics at the University of Oxford.

We are a large, multidisciplinary group with group members having studied physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanical engineering and more. These diverse expertise allow us to tackle wide-ranging problems across the field of novel semiconducting materials. Most of our research effort is focused on understanding, and improving, photovoltaic devices based on metal halide perovskite absorbers. Further, we work on perovskite light emitting diodes (LEDs), the synthesis of perovksite nanocrystals, the development of novel semiconducting materials as well as fundamental measurements of the electronic properties of these materials.

We have state-of-the-art fabrication facilities as well as device and thin-film characterisation facilities. We collaborate closely with the THz photonics and Semiconductors groups, as well as others in the sub-department and wider university.

The group is located at the Clarendon Laboratory, Parks Road, Oxford, OX1 3PU, UK. Information on how to travel here can be found here.
