Characterisation & Simulation
Innovation in science and technology relies on characterization and modelling, which are crucial for all levels of research in solar cell technology. By understanding material properties in initial stages and during fabrication, we can identify potential issues early on and develop better materials and structures for increased efficiency and lower manufacturing costs. At ANU, our goal is to develop reliable measurement and analytical methods, including theoretical modelling, to evaluate critical properties of solar cells and materials. We aim to enhance efficiency, durability, and manufacturability of photovoltaic devices by capturing properties at various levels, from microscopic to full cell and module, using fast and reliable monitoring techniques.
