Laboratory of Advanced Solar Energy Materials and Systems

Head of Laboratory: Azamat Yedrissov

Scientific areas

Development and research of highly efficient solar cells based on various new semiconductor materials.

Description

The laboratory is focused on research and development of organic and perovskite solar cells. The low cost and unique properties of these devices, such as flexibility and lightness have caused a lot of attention. Currently, the lab’s researchers keep reducing the effect of rapid degradation of organic cells, increasing their efficiency and developing new high-efficiency solar cells. Inorganic solar cells based on silicon also study in the laboratory.

Solar Energy Laboratory is equipped with a wide range of equipment for the fabrication of organic solar cells in an inert environment. In addition, the laboratory is equipped with various equipment for the characterization of solar cells.
