Since August 2018, the HZB group of Dr. Eva Unger (Hybrid Materials Formation and Scaling), who is working in HySPRINT perovskite lab, and the group of Prof. Dr. Emil List-Kratochvil (Hybrid Devices) from the Integrative Research Institute for the Sciences (IRIS) of Humboldt University of Berlin (HU Berlin), cooperate on the long-term project “Generative manufacturing processes for hybrid components” (GenFab).
List-Kratochvil and Unger are developing large scale (otpo)electronic devices and components fabricated by printing and solution-based methods from hybrid materials: from transparent conductive electrodes to memory devices, transistors, light-emitting diodes, solar cells and sensor applications.
Hybrid Materials Formation and Scaling (HZB)
The Young Investigator Group of Dr. Eva Unger develops scalable deposition methods for fabrication of large scale hybrid and perovskite-based photovoltaic devicesis, using the HySPRINT perovskite lab facilities.
Hybrid Devices (HU)
The group of Prof. Dr. Emil List-Kratochvil performes:
- coating and inkjet printing using various iks, e.g. metal nanoparticles, silver;
- fabrication of the devices on A4-scale (21 x 30 cm);
- structural and morphology characterisation of the final componets and devices via scanning electron microscopy (SEM), atomic force miscroscopy (AFM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS),...
- optical and electrical investigations by means of the four-point conductivity (see the photo), Raman, external quantum efficiency measurements and others...
More details on the availabale methods and research progress of the "Hybrid Devices" group can be found here.
To enforce the synergy between the research groups, they decided to establish a new jointly used lab space for GenFab. The joint research place will open in spring/summer 2020.
