2D materials or 2D materials based devices are applied for chemical engineering of advanced materials for energy harvesting devices.
Oriented perovskite materials on 2D materials can enhance the photoelectrical and physical properties of solar-harvesting and solar cells derived from bandgap tuning and control of carrier lifetime.
Moreover, combined with new generation of organic based hole or electron transporting materials, we also aim at demonstrating improved power conversion efficiencies as well as long term stabilities.

Since the early 2000’s, organic photovoltaics (OPVs) have attracted considerable attention. With record power conversion efficiencies (PCE) now reaching 20%, OPV represents a potential alternative or complement to conventional photovoltaic technology based on inorganic/hybrid materials. However, these records, typically reached with polymer donors associated with molecular non-fullerene acceptors, usually go hand in hand with a significant increase of the synthetic complexity and cost of such active materials. In this context, we aim at synthesising simple and scalable molecular donors, non-fullerene acceptors and also single-material for organic solar cells
