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 percent.
