Title: Advanced nanomaterials for solar cell applications. INCP Funded Research Presentations at HiB

Abstract: (.docx version)

Solar energy is one of the choices to meet the projected electrical energy demand, but the current production and installation costs of solar technologies based on Si and inorganic materials such as CdTe, GaAs make it hardly competitive in an energy market still dominated by cheap fossil fuels. During the last few decades, there has been a lot of research interest on various other materials and structures to produce low cost, flexible and easily manufactured Photo Voltaics (PV). In these presentations, we give a general insight into a variety of nanomaterial structures which can be used in solar cell applications. Special emphasis will be given to our research on Dye Sensitized Solar Cells. We will also explain how simulation studies could complement the experimental studies in designing the new-generation of solar cells.dhayalan_ict_seminar
