Understanding the components of Solar Cells: A synergy between theory and experiment
  Molecular Physics seminar

Monday 14 April 2014
from 10:00 to 11:00
at FD41
Speaker : Naresh K. Jena (Molecular Physics Division)
Abstract : Solar cells are key players in terms of their potential role in harvesting light and generation of energy, in wake of global energy crisis. In this talk, I will discuss our recent computational approach in the backdrop of XPS measurements by our experimental colleagues, for two key components of solar cells. In the first part, I will shed light on the solvent dependent structure of I-/I3- which is used as a redox couple in dye-sensitized solar cells. In the later part of my talk, I will focus on electronic structures of perovskite, which is a new-generation photo-voltic material used in highly efficient solid state solar cells.
