Researchers enhance efficiency of solar cell light-absorption capacity
DGIST has announced that the research team led by Professor Choi Jong-min of the Department of Energy Engineering at DGIST enhanced the light absorption capacity and also photocurrent generation of solar cells by applying a nano-structured electrode on the back of a perovskite quantum-dot solar cell, a next-generation solar cell material. On top of that, the group systematically verified the connection between the shape of the nanostructure and the performance of the solar cell and the optimized conditions for the formation of nanopatterns in organic materials.
