Selective Contacts and Active Layers for Energy Devices
New selective contacts for energy devices
Identification of selective contacts non-based on conventional doped heterojunctions. They must be deposited by simple fabrication processes, avoiding the use of hazardous materials.
Alternative light absorbers for photovoltaic devices
New light absorbers alternative to crystalline silicon wafers. Working for a next-generation thin-film PV devices.
Transparent electrodes free of critical raw materials
Multilayer transparent electrodes of good electrical properties and free of critical raw materials. Graphene will be specifically studied.
Laser processes for material treatment and patterning
Patterning of device structures by fast and simple laser ablation, alternative to standard photolithographic processes.
Laser processes to deposit metals and dielectrics
Novel solutions for depositing functional layers or electrodes without the need of high-vacuum equipment, flexible design of device configuration.
Solar cells based on non-conventional materials
Fabrication of solar cells integrating materials and new technologies developed within the project, combining high efficiency with simple fabrication routes.
Selective contacts for energy storage devices
Prospection on the use of selective contacts in the electrodes of storage devices like lithium-ion batteries. Potentially improved performance and life-cicle.
