Monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem structures on textured wafer-surfaces

Supervised by Dieter Neher, Bernd Rech and Steve Albrecht


The Ph.D. project aims in the realization of monolithic perovskite/silicon tandem structures on textured wafer surfaces that are utilized for optimum light management. The doctoral candidate will develop strategies to process inorganic-organic perovskite films and the selective contacts on top of various textured surfaces that are used for silicon photovoltaics. To realize this project, new film-processing techniques will be developed by the student In addition, fundamental physical understanding of the film formation will be realized by utilizing various analytical methods as basis for optimization of the tandem solar cell device performance.
