Organic Solar Cell Laboratory

Organic Solar Cell Laboratory

This laboratory is dedicated to the fabrication and characterisation of organic solar cells. A three-compartment glove box with a controlled N2 environment (less than 1 ppm O2 and moisture) houses coating and testing equipment such as a thermal evaporator for substrates up to 25 cm × 25 cm and a solar cell I-V tester.

Impedance analyser

A high-precision analytical tool for quality control and device characterisation, revealing the charge carrier dynamics in solar cells. In combination with a physics-based framework developed at SERIS, the impedance analyser can extract physical parameters that reflect fundamental electronic processes in a wide range of solar cells.

Other equipment in the lab include:

  • Spin coaters (maximum substrate size of 10 cm x 10 cm)
  • Photoluminescence setup
  • EQE measurement setup
  • Absorption measurement setup
