The main field of research of the Laboratory isthe synthesis and the design of the electrical, optical properties and defect structure of semiconductor materials for next-generation solar cells.In 2021, the research was focused on the following:‚ Modification of the CZTS/CdS interfacein order to reduce surface recombination.Kesterite compounds were also tested forwater splitting applications.‚ Development of synthesis conditions forsingle-phase pyrite microcrystals withthe scope to implement this technology inthe future European Space Agency’s lunarsettlement.‚ Development of tetrahedrite micro-crystals synthesize by molten salt method inCdI2 and LiI and photo-electrochemicalcharacterization.‚ Development of Zn(O,Se) functional layersby PLD technique as buffer layer for CIGSesolar cell structures. Vitreous Ga2Te3 thinfilms obtained by PLD for structural, optical and phase-change studies.‚ Detailed study of free exciton and biexcitonemissions in Sb2Se3 microcrystals.
