Solar Ink

Back to search results
The project will involve the development of stable, apply-able solar ink made of perovskites and quantum dot materials. The ink will be developed to suit different kinds of deposition and low temperature post-treatment processes such as printing and spraying on different kinds of large surfaces. Ink for interface layers between electrodes and solar absorber material will also be developed. Stress of surfaces on the performance of solar cells will be examined. The project will also investigate the feasibility of using solar ink from the balance of system, installation and regulatory (including those related to the built environment) points of view.
