Titanium-carbide MXenes for work function and interface engineering perovskite solar cells
“We discover that MXenes, owing to their unique two-dimensional structure, can be used to tune surface properties of perovskite permitting a new optimization strategy for this III-generation solar cell,” Professor Di Carlo comments.
MXenes were sequentially introduced indifferent layers of the perovskite solar cell: photo absorbing layer, electron transport layer based on titanium dioxide, and at the interface between them. After analysis of output performance of the devices, we found out that the most efficient configuration is the one where MXenes are introduced to all the layers, including the interface. The experimental results are confirmed by appropriate modeling of the obtained structures.
New paper about applying of Mxenes in Perovskite solar cells is in Nature materials
Entrance to a master’s degree program without examination!
Tatiana Komaricheva’s study of the implementation of a buffer layer of tin dioxide as an electron transport layer in perovskite solar cells was ranked first in design work competition named after academician A. A. Bochvar.
Postdoc Ali Sehpar Shikoh gave a fantastic lecture about the depth level of transient spectroscopy (DLTS)
The spring cycle of postdocs’ lectures is over!
All participants gave a series of scientific seminars and shared the results of their research. The lecture of Ali Sehpar Shikoh was about deep levels in the band gap of perovskite, which were investigated by DLTS method.
