A new efficiency regime for organic solar cells: Reducing recombination losses
Organic solar cells have many potential advantages over their inorganic counterparts – such as cheaper manufacturing, and being flexible and lightweight. Their development has been hampered by the main bottleneck in the field, namely recombination. This VIDI research will uncover the physics of this process so as to enable its reduction.
Efficiënte organische zonnecellen
Organische zonnecellen zijn een veelbelovend, nieuw type zonnecel. Om ze commerciëel toe te kunnen passen moet hun efficiëntie worden verbeterd. Daarom gaan de onderzoekers uitzoeken hoe het weglekken van ladingen in zulke zonnecellen kan worden onderdrukt.
