Manufacturing and Measurement of Solar Cells

As a rising star, perovskite-based photovoltaics have been demonstrated to be the most promising solar technology for low-cost mass production through high-speed printing. The certified champion power-conversion efficiency (PCE) of perovskite solar cells (PVSCs) has been boosted to 25.7%, which is on par with the best performance of dominating silicon solar cells. However, PVSCs still must overcome a few obstacles before becoming economically competitive in the photovoltaic market. The primary challenges include instability causing reduction in lifetimes and lengthy annealing times limiting the mass production. In this project, undergraduate students research fellow will work with graduate students and postdoctoral research fellows to explo...

Search for Magnetic Monopoles: from the Large Hadron Collider to Space

Student can get involved in the following aspects of the project: 1. Development of novel radiation detectors optimized for the magnetic monopole searches. The detectors are to be deployed at the Large Hadron Collider, CERN, and in space using CubeSat satellites. Experience with electronics (charge-sensitive amplifiers, impedance matching) and/or micro-fabrication techniques (physical vapor deposition, photolithography) is a plus. 2. Simulation of the galactic and solar magnetic fields to study propagation and detection of cosmological and astrophysical sources of magnetic monopoles....
