Next-generation photovoltaics

The expanding world population has made the supply of renewable energy sources a pressing area of current research. We are working on the development of next-generation solar cells, with particular emphasis on:

  • low-cost PV based on dye-sensitized metal-oxide particles and/or solution-processed carbon-based semiconductors
  • thermo-photovoltaic cells based on inorganic semiconductors;
  • generation of new active materials for PV through synthesis, characterization and implementation into devices.
