Senol Öz obtained his diploma in chemistry in 2013 at the University of Cologne (Germany). He completed his PhD under the supervision of Prof. Sanjay Mathur in 2018 at the University of Cologne (Institute for Inorganic Chemistry). His research interests include the synthesis, chemical engineering, and solution processing of inorganic-organic hybrid metal halide perovskite materials for photovoltaic application. In 2019 he joined Prof. Tsutomu Miyasaka’s group as a post-doctoral fellow at Toin University of Yokohama under a JSPS scholarship. He is currently an R&D project leader at Saule Technologies and managing director of Solaveni GmbH.
From Fundamentals to First Real World Applications of Hybrid Perovskite Photovoltaics
Since the emergence of hybrid perovskite photovoltaics in 2009 the scientific community has witnessed disruptive progress of the technology in terms of solar to electric power conversion efficiency (25.7%)1 accompanied by advancement in addressing stability issues and developing a deeper understanding of fundamental structure-processing-property relationships.
Merely a decade after discovery, the commercialization of organic-inorganic metal halide perovskites photovoltaic devices is just around the corner!
Many issues had to be tackled to meet industrialization, among them large area deposition techniques, safety standards and material wastage without compromising efficiency and stability. Saule technologies has been developing a fully scalable inkjet printing process of perovskite solar cell modules on lightweight flexible substrates. This talk will focus on recent advancements in the technology and the product development process required to bring inkjet printed perovskite modules closer to market entry. Moreover, it will underline the unique properties of the inkjet printing technique, which allow scalable solution-based fabrication of high-quality perovskite films and devices, processed in ambient atmosphere.
