Welcome to the ACDC Research Group
29 Sep 2023 - Yoann received the Dean's Award for Outstanding PhD Thesis. Congratulations, Dr Buratti!
Our mission is to save the planet by pushing photovoltaic technologies to their ultimate potential.
We are working on several research areas to achieve this goal. By designing novel inspection and analytics tools for photovoltaic devices, we are improving their stability and reliability. By developing advanced solar cell structures, we are increasing their efficiency and reducing their cost. We are also investigating how machine learning can be used to improve different aspects of photovoltaics. Our research spans a wide variety of new applications for photovoltaics, such agri-photovoltaics (agriPV), building-integrated photovoltaics (BIPV), and the Internet of Things (IoT).
We are committed to fostering a friendly, diverse, supportive, innovative, collaborative, and productive research environment. Our ambition is to maintain our position as one of the world-leading research groups in the area of photovoltaics.
We are devoted to sharing our knowledge with the public, increasing awareness of the risks of climate change, as well as the available solutions to combat it.
Getting out and about
We love to spend time together, in or out of the lab!
