Looking into the soft behavior of hybrid crystalline perovskite thin film

Solar cells based on organometallic lead halide perovskites have established themselves as a promising alternatives to commercial thin film solar cells. Photovoltaic conversion efficiencies have seen an increase from first reports of 3.8% to certified efficiencies of over 22% in less than a decade since the inception of the field. The crystallographic versatility of the material allows the possibility of extensive chemical tuning, which manifests in the material as a spectra of properties that may be obtained. This entices research on hybrid perovskite structures combining different organic and inorganic groups into a crystalline framework. Recent evidence indicates that the class of perovskite materials display characteristics which are suggestive of ‘soft matter’ like behavior. Ideal candidates would be helping demonstrate this claim through experimental work. The opportunity to be carrying out work in sophisticated environments, such as working in glovebox or carrying out state-of-the-art experiments at synchrotron sources are feasible. Other characterization techniques would be utilized for relevant archetypal measurements.

The project falls within a rapidly progressing field with great potential for industrialization. Inspired, promising candidates with good academic background and research experience may apply in order to acquire experience on relevant materials, electronic devices made thereof and characterization techniques for holistic knowledge within the booming field.

Novel nanostructured thermoelectric hybrid materials

In this project, we aim to fabricate and investigate novel organic-inorganic hybrid materials for thermoelectric applications. The goal is to realize efficient low temperature (T < 100°C) thermoelectric thin films and coatings which can contribute for example to energy efficient buildings. By combining nanostructured inorganic materials with conducting polymers a novel approach for this class of materials shall be realized. Possible inorganic nanomaterial components include Silicon nanocrystals (either undoped, n-type or p-type doped) as well as other nanoparticles. Different polymer materials such as the polymer blends of conjugated polymers, which can be tuned in conductivity and in its nanostructure, shall be used as the organic partner in our hybrid approach.
