Our group researches the interaction between light and structured matter for the purpose of engineering novel optical concepts and nanophotonic materials for next generation photovoltaics. The photovoltaic technologies in focus of our studies are perovskite thin-film solar cells and perovskite based multijuntion solar cells. Our work involves the fabrication, characterization, simulation and understanding of the device physics of perovskite photovoltaics.
Advanced Optics and Materials for Next Generation Photovoltaics
We are looking for highly motivated students interested in the areas of optics/photonics and thin-film photovoltaics. Three categories of positions are offered:
- Ph.D. thesis
- Bachelor/Master thesis
- Internships (min. 4 months)
If you are interested, contact us via mail. Please describe your interests and background. A CV, transcript of records and list of recommendations are highly appreciated.
Photovoltaik: Mehr Leistung dank selbstreinigender Oberfläche (only in German)
Scientists at KIT copy microstructures from the viola petal and improve performance of solar cells.
