Spin Effects in Organic Solar Cells
The goal of this project is to provide an estimate of how much spin effects can enhance the performance of OSC. This will involve the fabrication of OSCs using vacuum deposition and exploring novel concepts to use triplet-triplet annihilation to improve the performance of OSCs. The made devices will be extensively characterised to compare standard and spin-enhanced solar cells. Furthermore, materials developed as part of SEPOMO by our collaborators will be combined with state-of-the-art devices.
Being an ITN Project, the researcher will do several secondments to our partners. Currently planned are three months at the Technical University of Dresden, Germany, for learning about vacuum processing of OSC, three months at the Technical University of Chemnitz, Germany, for being trained in transient measurement techniques and finally, one month at K.J. Lesker in Hastings, UK, for training in advanced thin film processing.
