The KPV-LAB brings international researchers together to develop high-efficiency solar cells

Research at KPV-LAB


Welcome to the KAUST Photovoltaics-Laboratory (KPV-LAB) webpage

The KPV-LAB is led by Stefaan De Wolf of the Material Science & Engineering Program at King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).

At KPV-LAB, we are dedicated to developing a realistic high-efficiency photovoltaic solution for sunny and hot climates. Our research efforts are focused on "Silicon Heterojunction Solar Cells", "Perovskite Solar Cells", and "Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells".

The KPV-LAB has strong collaborations with respected academic researchers and industrial partners.




The KPV-LAB attracts qualified researchers from different countries across the world. To be part of our multinational team, check out our vacancies​.
