Solar photovoltaics is becoming the most important source of electricity generation with over a Terawatt already installed globally. Although the growth of solar has been extraordinary, it is a young technology, with much more scope for improvement.
This project is aimed at using world class characterisation techniques including a new cathodoluminescence facility to determine how defects, impurities and microstructure can affect second-generation solar cell performance. The project will involve interaction with international laboratories and industry leaders.
