Solar cells based on metal halide perovskite materials have emerged as a promising candidate for next-generation photovoltaic technology. In these solar cell devices, surfaces and interfaces play a pivotal role. In this talk, I will share our research results on surface science studies on perovskite materials. Also, I will show a few examples to demonstrate the solar cell applications of perovskite materials.

The Provost Lecture Series will provide an opportunity to celebrate milestones in the careers of OIST faculty members. It will recognize newly promoted professors and those who have received prestigious awards. It will highlight faculty achievements and create a space for retiring professors to talk about their research accomplishments and lessons learned over the course of their career. It is a way to celebrate OIST faculty, introduce them to the broader OIST community, acknowledge their research successes, share about their teaching and mentorship of students, and honor their service to the university.
