The Hybrid Solar Cell Group focuses on novel concepts towards more efficient solar cells using both organic and inorganic materials. We combine the unique properties and the richness of organic materials with highly efficient, well-characterized inorganic materials.
For instance, we utilize singlet fission, a charge carrier multiplication process only observed in organic materials, to generate additional current in inorganic solar cells. This could one day lead to solar cells that overcome the Shockley-Queisser efficiency limit.
We also run the AMOLF solar test field.
