Project Title: 
Absorption Management in Perovskite Solar Cells
Project Abstract: 
  Addressing the challenges in the solar cells field is of mass importance, yet sometimes researchers tend to focus on technological advancements and less on economical realities that are a main driver for the viability of new technologies intreduced to the market. This research aim to address a solution based process that produces the well-known Perovskite Solar Cells. Specifically it aims to enhance absorption and to tackle one of the degradation mechanisms that prevents it’s commercial viability. We will do that by using FDTD software that already suggest some favorable architectures and by using a solvent based patterning technique developed in our lab.
