We work on developing the next generation of photovoltaics based on defect-tolerant materials, which could enable high efficiency to be achieved using low-cost growth methods. Image credit: Steve Penney
We develop materials for ultrahigh definition displays and flexible solid-state lighting using nanostructured metal-halide perovskites.
We develop new structures that allow two solar cells to work in tandem and surpass the efficiencies of single-junction devices. Image credit: Dr. Maung Thway, Dr. Yuanhang Chen and Tianyuan Liu
We play an active role in organising symposia on next-generation photovoltaics at international conferences in the US, France, Poland and Japan. Here is an invited Future Energy piece in Joule we wrote stemming from one of the symposia we organised.
