Interface Science of Plastic Solar Cells
The Masri Institute will be hosting Dr. Tobin Marks on April 7 & 8, 2016. The lecture will be held on Thursday, April 7, 2016 . In this seminar, challenges and opportunities in molecular photovoltaic interface science are illustrated. It will be seen that such rational interface engineering along with improved bulk-heterojunction polymer structures guided by theoretical/computational analysis, affords exceptional fill factors, solar power conversion efficiencies greater than 10%, and enhanced solar cell durability.
