Current Research Activities

The focus of my PhD is on the fabrication and optimisation of light-weight and flexible dye-sensitised solar cells (DSSC) based off a novel back-contact design. This development overcomes the limitations of poor electrical conductivity with transparent conductive oxide glass electrodes by replacing them with thin metal foil electrodes. Consequently, light weight and flexible DSSC modules can be fabricated utilising a roll-to-roll process.
