The National Centre for Photovoltaic Research and Education (NCPRE) at IIT Bombay is conducting a 2-day short-term course on "Perovskite Solar Cells". Details of the course follows:
Title: "Perovskite Solar Cells"
Course Coordinator: Prof. Dipti Gupta and Prof. Dinesh Kabra, NCPRE, IIT Bombay
About the course: Organic - inorganic hybrid perovskite semiconductors have recently revolutionized the field of low cost, solution-processed photovoltaics. It has garnered world-wide interest due to the tremendously high efficiency numbers in an extremely short time span in comparison to the progress seen in other PV materials. In just 4 years of research, these materials have enabled a rapid progression of solar cell efficiency from 4 to over 22 %, making this technology competitive with traditional silicon solar cells. The materials are also suitable for use in solution
-processed lasers and light emitting diodes, which satisfy important criterion "good absorbers are good emitters". The success of this remarkable class of materials lies in its combination of unique optoelectronic properties. Candidates of this course will be exposed to the understanding of the physics underlying perovskite optoelectronic devices: from material properties to device physics. Useful experimental techniques will be described, and a strong emphasis placed on experimental results from the literature to reflect the rapidly evolving nature of this field. The use of the cells based on perovskites in a tandem architecture with the well-established Si and thin film technologies, along with the challenges and possible solution will be discussed. The concerns of large area and stability, which these materials are plagued with, will also be one of the main highlight of this course.
