Presentation Title Interrogating Nanoscale Defects to Enable Cost-Effective Solar Energy Conversion
Author(s) David Fenning
On-Site Speaker (Planned) David Fenning
Abstract Scope To achieve long-term stability of large-area solar energy conversion devices, improved control over the defects that currently limit their performance is required. A multi-scale characterization approach will be presented that probes nanoscale defect behavior– even at bulk impurity concentrations as low as part per billion and below – to investigate their macroscale optoelectronic impact in today’s solar cells. By quantifying the defect kinetics observed, I will demonstrate how we can use defect simulation to guide the absorber’s processing into a completed cell. Translating learnings from silicon photovoltaics to the emerging class of organic-inorganic lead halide perovskites, I will discuss our recent synchrotron-based X-ray nanoprobe investigations of chemical heterogeneity in perovskite solar cells. By identifying and controlling device-limiting defects in the bulk or at interfaces, we can systematically improve the integration of state-of-the-art materials for high-efficiency, low-cost solar energy conversion and storage.
