Project title, type and project number
Elaboration of unconventional nanostructured perovskites and zinc oxide through compositional and morphological engineering for game-changing improvements in light harvesting devices, MAESTRO 11, no. 2019/34/A/ST5/00416; 51/2023
Prof. dr hab. inż. Janusz Lewiński
Main objectives of the project are directed to tackle challenges concerning either the perovskite absorber layer and the ZnO-based ETL. We plane to develop both mechanochemical processes for the preparation of highly advanced multicomponent MHP inks and controlled growth of MHP materials with various morphologies including single crystals, nanowires and unprecedented nanotubes/microtubes. In regard to ZnO-based ETL, new high-quality ZnO and metal-doped ZnO nanostructures will be elaborated using the one-pot self-supporting organometallic (OSSOM) procedure. Finally, the relationship between device performance and bulk physical properties of both MHPs and ZnO materials will be systematically investigated.
