Brett Hallam

Scientia and ARC DECRA Fellow
Associate Professor

Description

Dr Brett Hallam is a Scientia Fellow in the School of Photovoltaic and Renewable Energy Engineering at UNSW. His research interests include laser processing and defect-engineering for silicon solar cells. The development of these processes could improve the efficiency of solar cells and reduce the cost of photovoltaic generated electricity. A key focus of his current research is improving the fundamental understanding of hydrogen passivation mechanisms in silicon solar cells to overcome the negative impact of performance limiting defects.

Outside of Work

I love the beach. If I'm not working or sleeping, you will probably find me there surfing or kiteboarding. I enjoy travelling around the world to new places to surf, kite or snowboard.
