Design, Fabrication and Characterisation for High Performance

Module Summary

University of Bath

Mar 05 - Mar 16 2018


In this module you will receive training in electro-chemistry characterisation, electronic structure, Kinetic Monte Carlo simulations, materials characterisation for organic photovoltaic cells and fabrication methods for transparent coated oxides and thin film solar cells. There will be a visit to Bath Abbey, including a trip to the roof weather permitting, to discuss solar cell installation possibilities and to produce publicity materials on this topic. You will be based in room EB0.5 near the bus turnaround for all sessions except electro-chemistry characterisation experiments, fabrication methods for transparent coated oxides and the lab tour on spectrsocopy of organic devices.

On the social side there will be a pub quiz with the CDTs: CDT-CMP and Samba and the CDT-PV Bath module dinner. For any enquiries email me, Alison Walker, or get advice from the Bath CDT-PV students using Slack.

Minerva - and St Andrews Terrace The University of Bath has very few parking spaces for visitors so I strongly advise using the bus service to travel between the accomodation and the university. Or, if you are fit, you can walk (about 40 minutes from Minerva up 200 m hill)
