RESEARCH FIELD

  • Improving thin-film solar cells by deliberate interface tailoring
  • Surface and interface analysis of energy-related devices (e.g., thin-film solar cells, photoelectrochemical cells, light-emitting diodes, fuel and electrolysis cells)
  • Characterization and modification of interfaces in (wide-gap) chalcopyrite thin-film solar cells
  • Wet-chemical surface treatments of chalcopyrite thin-film solar cell absorbers
