Organic and perovskite photovoltaics are extremely attractive candidates for use in next-generation solar cell technologies to generate renewable energy. They’re lightweight, mechanically flexible and offer affordable manufacturing processes. The development of solution-processed tandem fabrication techniques will significantly reduce the cost of electricity generation for commercial applications. It’ll also establish an Australian tandem cell processing capability that will make the country a global leader in the commercialisation of tandem solar cells.
Our work is focused on the development and fabrication of high-efficiency semitransparent organic and tandem solar cells for window applications. Optimising the device structure design of tandem devices to improve the device efficiency toward a theoretical efficiency of 40 per cent.
