Surface Passivation of Perovskite Solar Cells with Designed Bifacial Molecule
Recently, for improving the performance of perovskite (PVK) solar cells, surface passivation with organic molecules that can protect structural defects on the surface/interface of PVK. Focusing on the fact that the target of passivation is "the surface of PVK, an asymmetric two-dimensional field,” we develop a new structural concept of "asymmetric bifacial structure" for passivation molecules. In this study, we will design, synthesize, and evaluate novel "bifacial passivation molecules" to improve the power conversion efficiency and durability of PVK solar cells.


My dream is to create structurally interesting functional molecules! I will do my best!
