Johannes Sutter, PhD student at HZB, was awarded a poster prize at the "International Conference on Perovskite Solar Cells, Photonics and Optoelectronics (NIPHO19)". The conference took place from 25-27 February 2019 in Jerusalem.

Johannes Sutter is working on his PhD in the Nano-SIPPE group of Prof. Dr. Christiane Becker, his experimental work is done in the Helmholtz Innovation Lab HySPRINT at HZB. He won a poster prize at the first international conference at which he was able to present his work. The prize from the scientific publisher Wiley was associated with a book voucher worth 300 euros.

Sutter develops nanostructures at interfaces in perovskite-silicon tandem solar cells in order to facilitate spin coating of perovskite. These nanostructures should have low reflection values and good electronic properties.

By combining the processes of nanoimprint lithography and reactive ion etching, it is possible to transfer the nanostructures into crystalline silicon. Both optical and electronic investigations show that such interface structures can improve the properties of perovskite silicon tandem cells.

    LAUNCH OF EPKI: European Perovskite Initiative for the development of Perovskite based solar technology

    Perovskite based solar cells have made tremendous progress over the last decade achieving lab-scale efficiencies of 24.2% early 2019 in single-junction architecture and up to 28% in tandem (perovskite associated with crystalline silicon), turning it into the fastest-advancing solar technology to date. With the HySPRINT project and the recruitment of highly talented young scientists, Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin has built up a considerable research capacity in the field of perovskite materials in recent years and is participating in the European Perovskite Initiative EPKI that has now been launched.
