PhD position - New redox mediator and electrolyte optimization for NIR-dye-sensitized solar cells

New redox mediator and electrolyte optimization for NIR-dye-sensitized solar cells

Photovoltaic devices are typically characterized by their intrinsic coloration owing to the bandgap of the absorber in the visible range of the solar spectrum. Dye-sensitized solar cell is a peculiar technology relying on electrochemical processes which allow semi-transparence and different coloration depending on the type of dye structure. At LRCS (Laboratoire de Réactivité et Chimie des Solides, CNRS UMR 7314), in relationship with the CNRS and Torino University, we developed and patented a new technology of dye-sensitized solar cells absorbing exclusively the near-Infrared region of light. This new NIR-DSSC technology offers full transparency and colourless in the visible region.

The objective of this Ph-D position is to continue in developing NIR-DSSC technology by focusing on the development of adapted electrolytes to this technology. This research will be carried out in a worldwide leading CNRS lab in the field (Laboratoire de Réactivité et Chimie des Solides, LRCS CNRS UMR7314). The project integrates high risk / high research outcome, good balance between fundamental and applied research, very promising for high quality scientific production. This project calls therefore for a highly qualified and motivated candidate whose skills are material science, electrochemistry and photochemistry or qualified records on organic / organometallic synthesis.  

To apply a resume, transcripts and motivation letter are required.
