Advanced characterisation of solar devices and their related components
Why is your research important?
Photovoltaic (PV) systems are poised to play a pivotal role in addressing the urgent climate change crisis that our society is currently facing. Intensive global endeavors are underway to amplify the effectiveness of these systems in harnessing solar energy and converting it into electricity. In this pursuit, the ongoing development of luminescence-based characterisation techniques is proving invaluable in comprehending the factors that limit the performance of solar devices. By shedding light on these limitations, luminescence-based characterisation has the potential to guide the development of a new breed of exceptionally efficient solar cells.
What do you like about research?
One of my main driving forces in life is learning new things about our world. Regarding this, research does a really good job!
What do you like to do when you are not saving the world?
Experiencing the beauty of nature while hiking or running in the wild, experiencing human body wonders in practicing martial arts, and reading some good sci-fi novel.
