Materials Synthesis Laboratory infrastructure is dedicated to the development and fabrication of perovskite solar cells. In this laboratory it is carried out the major part of the synthesis and assembly of the solar devices.
Also, DSC measurements are possible as well as 2D-printing. This inkjet-printing technology allow as to the fabrication of a wide variety of flexible devices
Juan de la Cierva Fellow – Senior Researcher
Atomic force microscopy (AFM), X-Ray difractogram (XRD), Optical measurements (J-V curves, Quantum efficiency (QE), Impedance Spectroscopy (IS), Differential scanning calorimetry (DSC), Scanning electron microscopy (SEM), fabrication of solar cell devices (pervoskite based).
Manuel Salado Manzorro received his PhD in Material Science in 2017, from Abengoa Research (www.abengoa.com) along with Pablo de Olavide University (www.upo.es), under the supervision of Prof. Shahzada Ahmad. He was recognized as the first PhD student to be awarded with the Industrial mention by the Pablo de Olavide University. The main goal of his PhD was the study and development of hybrid perovskite interfaces for the improvement in stability and efficiency of photovoltaics solar cells. His background as a Chemical Engineer and his subsequent Master degree in Nanomaterialsand nanostructures (www.unizar) were beneficial to assess and improve the processes related with the fabrication (scale-up) and development on products based on perovskites. He has written over 15 papers in peer-reviewed international journals, 2 Book chapters and he is also co-inventor of 2 patents in the field of perovskite solar cells.”
Interests and objetives
One of the key points of my PhD was the improvement in device performance and stability of perovskite based solar cells; Working on MOLEMAT (Molecularly Engineered Materials and process for Perovskite solar cell technology) project will give me the oportunity to keep understanding the kinetics of the devices, improving their stability and undertaking new techniques to elucidate the role of the different compounds in perovskite material.
