Research Team from Department of Materials Engineering, MCUT, Develops New Photovoltaic Materials and Process Technology
In recent years, the development of next-generation perovskite solar cell has shed light on improving the efficiency of silicon wafer photoelectric conversion. Taiwan has been striving to develop alternative energy, which is expected to amount to 25% in 2,025. Among the various types of renewable energy, photovoltaics will be the most important one to be developed.
Professor Yu-Ching Huang (Department of Materials Engineering, MCUT) has cooperated with Professor Wei-Fang Su (Department of Materials Science and Engineering, NTU) to work on the research and development of upscale-manufacturing perovskite and silicon tandem solar cell. The two professors have been undertaking an industry-academy cooperation project with Neo Solar Power Energy Corp., the leader in the Taiwan solar power industry. They have made a breakthrough in relevant materials and processing technology, whose photoelectric conversion efficiency is expected to achieve 26%.
Particularly, Professor Huang and his research team have made significant achievements in their research. The process technology which they have developed can help manufacture large-area and high-efficiency perovskite solar cell in the air. Their research findings have been reported in Advanced Energy Materials, the leading journal in the research area of energy, and featured on its cover page! The research led by Professor Huang not only facilitates the commercialization of next-generation perovskite solar cell, but opens up new possibilities for renewable energy.
