Physics Seminar

Emerging photovoltaic cells for indoor and aerospace applications

Speaker: Dr Wing Chung Tsoi (Swansea University)
Date: Wednesday 10 March 2021
Time: 15:00 in UK
Venue: Zoom

Organic and perovskite photovoltaic cells are attractive for next generation power sources, with the potential for low cost photovoltaic cells. Furthermore, the optical properties can be easily tuned chemically, this property is very attractive for indoor applications (e.g. white LEDs mainly emit in the visible). Moreover, they can be fabricated on light weight and flexible substrates with very high specific power (power per weight) which is important for aerospace applications. This talk will introduce results of the cells for indoor and aerospace applications, which shows that they have promising potential for both applications.

Bio: Dr Wing Chung Tsoi is a senior lecturer at the College of Engineering at Swansea University. He come from Hong Kong and obtained his PhD at The University of Hull (UK). He was a postdoctoral researcher at Sheffield University, Imperial College London and National Physical Laboratory (UK). His current research interests are mainly on organic and perovskite photovoltaic devices for new applications, as well as advanced Raman system-based multiple mapping techniques to study semiconductors. He is the Royal Microscopy Society 2021 Winner of the Medal for Innovation in Applied Microscopy for Engineering and Physical Sciences.
