Abstract:

The objectives of the project are three-fold 1 Development of first-principles simulator to understand the fundamental physical processes underlying the performance of the solar cells. 2 Identifying key physical quantities and materials parameters controlling the efficiency of the solar cells and translating the understanding to a set of materials design rules. 3 Providing theoretical guidance and computational screening for molecular design of materials to achieve high efficiency.
