Research proposalElena KhonThe development and optimizing the performance of high efficient prototype solar cells


Problem energy crisis

Problem: Energy crisis

I propose work that will target:

  • the development of colloidal chemistries for growing semiconductor nanocrystals onto substrate-bound oxides,

  • elucidating the nature of interfacial charge transfer and heterojunction stoichiometry though ultrafast optical spectroscopy, and advanced electron microscopy imaging techniques,

  • optimizing the performance of prototype solar cells comprising fabricated composite nanomaterials.


Highest efficiency of nano composit solar cells known nowadays is 5 1

Highest efficiency of nano-composit solar cells known nowadays is 5.1%

Schematics of photovoltaic device hetero-epitaxial NC/oxide nano-composites


Problem energy crisis

Electronic energy level of each material layer in a NC-sensitized solar cell comprising a solid hole conductor. Vertical bars represent size-dependent band edge energies for several semiconductor NCs.


Primary goal and expected result

Primary goal and expected result

The increasing of the efficiency of photovoltaic device achieved through understanding of growth kinetics of each nanocrystal/oxide system, the development of large-scale and well-controlled synthesis of durable nanostructures, and optimization of device performance
