Focused Research Group on Energy Materials
The FRG on Materials for Energy is engaged in development of Organic Solar Cell and Organic Light Emitting Devices on flexible and stretchable substrates, integration of energy storage devices and batteries with light trapping systems to new generation roofing materials and novel energy generation systems. Both experimental and computational modelling methods will be used. The goal will be to develop the next generation of solar cells and light emiting devices from organic and perovskite-based materials, while exploring the frontiers of Lithium ion and platinum-based materials for energy storage.
The areas in which the Energy Materials FRG should achieve excellence include:
(i) Organic and perovskite based solar cells and
(iii) thin films and bulk structures for energy storage.
