Emerging solar cells (known as third generation photovoltaic) including perovskite solar cells, dye-sensitised solar cells, organic solar cells and silicon-based heterojunction solar cells have attracted increasing attention due to their low-cost, high efficiency, ease of fabrication and tailorable design. Despite their great promises, these solar cells do have some disadvantages such as use of expensive electrode materials, the high temperature required during production and poor operational stabilities. Two-dimensional (2D) layered nanomaterials such as black phosphorus and metal carbide MXene have shown great promise for use in a wide range of energy related applications including solar cells. The high degree of tunability in the properties of these unique nanomaterials offers an abundance of opportunities for next generation solar cells. In this talk, Dr Munkhbayar will present the recent contributions he and his colleagues made to this cutting-edge research area and also highlight the future promises in this area.

About School research seminars

Seminars cover all aspects of chemistry and molecular biosciences and are delivered by visiting national and international academics. PhD completion seminars are also incorporated into the program.

Seminars are usually held in person and via zoom. All are welcome to attend.
