Silicon Photovoltaic Solar Cells

Increasing energy demands, exhaustion of easily accessible oil resources and fears of climate change make renewable energy sources a necessity. We expect to make a very important improvement to the efficiency of the dominant solar PV technology.

Group

Photon Science Institute

The Photon Science Institute was established in 2005 to bring together experts from a wide range of scientific fields to foster the development of cross and multi-disciplinary collaborations and provide a dynamic and exciting culture for the progression of new ideas in photon science. The term photon science encompasses all areas where light is used in scientific endeavour — light for science.
