Final Report - NANOITSELF (Advanced functional nanocomposites by cooperative self assembly)

Project ID: 230810
Funded under: FP7-PEOPLE

Abstract

This is the final report of the NANOITSELF project, which is funded under the European Commission (EC) Seventh Framework Programme (FP7). The project studied the preparation of hybrid organic-inorganic nanomaterials, obtained from self-assembled surfactant systems, regarding their technological applications in photovoltaic devices. Various nanoparticles found in mircoemulsions were characterised and their photovoltaic properties evaluated; their chemical compositions and structures are very important as regards their photovoltaic aptitudes.
%Project results show how to better control physicochemical interactions at interfaces, thereby yielding selection criteria for the design and syntheses of hybrid functional materials with improved photovoltaic properties. This could lead to new organic-based photovoltaic devices as substitutes for the current silicon-based photovoltaics.
