Research and development of next generation high performance solar cells is paramount for our societal needs. The research aim is to go beyond silicon technology, and develop cost effective solar technology to address climate change issue. The subject is truly multidisciplinary and requires expertise from different disciplines including physics, chemistry, materials science and engineering both in theory and experiment. MOLEMAT (Molecularly Engineered Materials and process for Perovskite solar cell technology) is a EU funded, excellence research project (ERC) aiming to develop a new technology for solar cells which is beyond silicon. Compositional engineering of light harvesting materials i.e. organo halide perovskites, followed by experimental screening of novel hole transport materials which can be used for the development of high performance perovskite solar cells.
