Project Description

This program aims to comprehensively understand the coupling between the materials science of novel ultra-narrow bandgap organic semiconductors with the advanced device physics and visual perception of organic bulk-heterojunction solar cells to pursue a new generation of high-performance and wavelength selectively transparent organic potovoltaics.
This program will establish a new long-term, cutting-edge research in the rapidly emerging field of ST-OPVs and harmonically complement ongoing Nazarbayev University (NU) efforts in developing organic solar cells and photodiodes (research group of Prof. Brus) and hybrid organic-inorganic perovskite solar cells (research groups of Prof. Jumabekov and Prof. Ng). Due to our synergetic contribution to building a local interdisciplinary collaborative research structure, NU will be internationally recognized and promoted as an important optoelectronic and photovoltaic research center.
