General Area(s) of Research: Nanocrystals for solar photoconversion, organic-inorganic metal halide perovskite absorbers

Description of potential projects for CINEMA applicants: This project entails the production and characterization of novel thin-film photovoltaic devices based on single-walled carbon nanotube absorber layers. The project will require the preparation of SWCNT dispersions based on highly enriched semiconducting SWCNTs, deposition of PV devices based on bilayers with C60 and other device architectures, analysis of photovoltaic efficiencies for the prepared devices, and characterization of thin-film optical and electrical properties.
