Over the last 20 years the devices based on Dye Sensitized Solar Cells (DSSCs) architecture have attracted a massive increase in research effort, which has led to great advances in efficiency, reproducibility and stability. However, to compete with the price of the electric energy generated by the conventional fossil fuels, a significant increase in efficiency is required for these emerging technologies in order to reduce the cost of harvesting solar power and drive the adoption of solar cells for utility-scale power generation.
Currently my research is focused on fabrication of novel devices: engineering the structure or using different materials for enhancing the efficiency. At the same time I’m working on the investigation of electronic and ionic processes in dye-sensitized solar cells (DSSCs) and Quantum Dot Sensitized Solar Cells (QDSCs) through the use of Electrochemical Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS). This technique is a powerful tool for providing a full picture of the processes determining the operation of DSSCs.
