Quantum Dot Photovoltaics

The efficiency of solution processed lead chalcogenide colloidal quantum dot (CQD) solar cells has increased from less than 1 to over 15% in the last 8 years. They have proven to be air-stable and do not require high temperature processing, which are major drawbacks for competing thin film, organic, perovskite and dye sensitized technologies. A project is offered with one of the folllowing focuses 1. CQD Syntheisis 2. CQD Device Characterisation 3.CQD TEM. All projects will involve the fabrication of devices.

The description above outlines a possible new research project being offered to prospective new postgraduate students.
