PhD in Physical Chemistry with Focus on Perovskite Solar Cells for Conversion of Solar Energy to Electricity

International students are invited for a PhD scholarship in civil engineering at Uppsala University. Applications are invited up to February 01, 2019.

The Department of Chemistry – ngstrm conducts research and education in the chemistry field. The department has more than 200 employees and has a turnover of 200 million SEK. At the department’s six programs, we conduct very successful research of a high international standard. We have a large number of externally funded research projects, often with international cooperation and we see continued good growth in our subject area. The department has education assignments in engineering and civil engineering programs and master’s programs.

In the project metal-halide perovskite materials will be synthesized and investigated in detail. New perovskite materials will be developed and the perovskite materials will be investigated using a wide range of methods. Perovskite solar cells are composed of a thin layer consisting of the metal-halide perovskite between two suitable contacts. Complete solar cells will be prepared and characterized using electrical-, optical- and photoelectrical methods and advanced X-ray and laser based techniques in order to understand the fundamental mechanisms for conversion of light to electricity.

The research will be performed in collaboration with several researchers and research groups in Sweden and abroad. Specifically, the collaboration involves material chemists for the design of the new materials for the solar cell, physicists for advanced spectroscopic measurements and theory experts for theoretical simulations of the new materials.
