Large-area Organic and Hybrid Solar Cells

Objective

The task of developing large-area, thin film solar cells based on polymers as well as solid-state organic-inorganic (hybrid) systems will be undertaken. The required novel materials (charge transport polymers, semiconductor surfactants/compatibilizers and inorganic nanoparticles) will be synthesized and the compounds with the most potential will be scaled-up for the purpose of modern fabrication methods such as roll-to roll (R2R) processing. Additionally, the efficient devices will be tested and analyzed in out-door conditions in India and under accelerated ageing conditions in Israel to understand the degradation mechanism. Finally the basic information from stability studies will be used to design novel materials suitable for highly efficient devices of long-term stability. The programme is intensively intertwined with an Indian consortium, especially in the fields of novel materials, out-door testing, transfer and exchange of knowledge and methods.
