Advancing Manufacturability of Hybrid Organic-inorganic Semiconductors for Large Area Optoelectronics
Background and main goal
Optoelectronic technologies based on a perovskite semiconductor promise numerous advantages over existing options: a lower levelized cost of solar electricity, colour-pure light-emitting diode displays, and highly sensitive detectors for photons, X-rays, or gamma rays. The challenge is that best-performing perovskite materials still degrade too rapidly to make any of these applications economically viable at this stage of research. Furthermore, performance quickly decreases when increasing the size of devices towards industry-relevant dimensions.
AMYS aims to overcome these limitations by (i) exploring the compositional space of perovskites to find compositions most suited for upscaling, (ii) understanding of how processing conditions can be modulated to improve optoelectronic properties and stability of the resulting thin films, and (iii) advancing the manufacturability of perovskites by demonstrating large-area optoelectronic devices that exhibit high performance and stability.
Idea and approach
The AMYS project is centred on the identification of novel perovskite thin-film formulations and their deposition on large areas with novel industry-compatible processes. More specifically, AMYS will:
To accomplish its objectives, the AMYS project will be organised around two 'pipelines' to bring compositions and processing conditions from small thin films to large-area functional devices of industrial relevance:
