Printable solar cells
My talk covers research on printable solar cells including perovskite solar cells and dye-sensitized solar cells. We focus on IR sensitive perovskite photo-electric conversion systems, Pb free perovskite solar cells, charge injection interface architectures from the view point of surface passivation, trap distribution study using thermally stimulated current, carrier dynamic collaboration study, flexible perovskite solar cells, and so on.  In addition, cylinder dye-sensitized solar cells without transparent conductive oxide layer (back contact DSSC) will be reported.
