Collaborative Research Program 2024-2026
This collaborative research project is to develop a novel photovoltaic (PV) device structure for architectural glass applications by integrating 2 of the most promising new-generation PV technologies: perovskite solar cells (PSCs) and organic photovoltaics (OPVs) on the same surface. The integrated PVs ultimately developed in this project will be in a 3-terminal configuration with sharing one of the electrodes and exploring the possibility of using common materials for some of the functional layers in PSCs and OPVs. The proposed configuration is ideal for glass applications as it meets the requirements for good transparency, discrete colors, and aesthetic appeal. The outcomes from this project will provide a deeper understanding of the emerging PV materials and design parameters necessary to achieve an optimal PV device performance for glass applications. We aim to develop a scalable and cost-effective process for manufacturing PSC/OPV integrated devices, while maintaining the desired aesthetic properties.
