Project Description

The equipment sought through this proposal will support a fast growing team of internationally recognized scientists, in their quest to develop advanced nanomaterials for the next generation of photovoltaic devices. The combined fabrication and characterization facility is unique to Australia and will help to provide critical infrastructure that is currently only available through overseas collaborations. It will enables researchers to (1) efficiently integrate novel electromaterials into state-of-the-art photovoltaic devices and compare their performance to current benchmark materials and (2) study electron transfer and transport dynamics in order to reveal the material properties that govern the electronic behaviour of these materials.
