Abstract: Organic and perovskite photovoltaic cells are attractive for next generation power sources, with the potential for low cost photovoltaic cells. Furthermore, the optical properties can be easily tuned chemically, this property is very attractive for indoor applications (e.g. white LEDs mainly emit in the visible). Moreover, they can be fabricated on light weight and flexible substrates with very high specific power (power per weight) which is important for aerospace applications. This talk will introduce results of the cells for indoor and aerospace applications, which shows that they have promising potential for both applications.
Dr Wing Chung Tsoi
Bio: Dr Wing Chung Tsoi's research interests are mainly focused on solution-process photovoltaic / solar cells, including organic solar cells, perovskite solar cells. He is particularly interested in understanding the structure-property-performance relationship of the photovoltaic / solar cells, in order to understand the fundamentals and to improve the performance, particularly the stability of the photovoltaic / solar cells. He is developing / applying advanced (nano-)characterisation methods to probe the structures / morphology of the photovoltaic thin films, and correlate it to the properties and performances.
