Development of emerging materials for non-conventional energy generation and storage devices.
The main Research activity of CIEMAT in this project is the development of materials for innovation in (i) selective contacts, (ii) transparent electrodes free of crytical raw materials, and (iii) alternative active layers for applications in non-conventional energy generation and storage devices.
Development of selective contacts, transparent electrodes and new absorbers.
The research activity of UB is focused on the development of new selective contacts, dipolar layers and the development of metal oxides as alternative absorbers for dopant-free heterojunction solar cells.
Design and implementation of new generation solar cells
The UPC will design and fabricate new generation solar cells following the concept of optical absorber plus complementary charge-carrier selective contacts. The active layers developed by the partners in this project will be implemented in novel device architectures.
Laser Direct Write Processes for developing new energy devices
Laser Direct Write Processes for developing new energy devices:
- Laser processes for material treatment and patterning (laser ablation – substrative process)
- Laser processes to deposit metals and dielectrics (Laser Induced Forward Transfer LIFT – additive process)
