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", "Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells", and "Perovskite/Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells".
The KPV-LAB has strong collaborations with respected academic researchers and industrial partners.
Perovskite/Perovskite Tandem Solar Cells
We develop perovskite/perovskite tandem solar cells aiming at>30% power conversion efficiency with Pb/Sn-based low bandgap rear cells.
Novel Transparent Conductive Oxide Electrodes
ITO, IZO, IZrO, H: In2O3, AZO are some of the successful materials have been developed at KPV-LAB
Perovskite/Silicon Tandem Solar Cells
The KPV-LAB develops novel perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells aiming >30% power conversion efficiency
Novel Carrier Selective Contacts by ALD
High-Efficiency Perovskite Solar Cells
KPV-LAB focuses on developing large-area compatible fabrication methods for high-performance perovskite solar cells
Silicon Heterojunction Solar Cells
One of the main research activities of KPV-LAB is focused on the development of high-efficiency silicon heterojunction solar cells (SHJ)
21 December, 2021Prof. Stefaan De Wolf is a co-organizer of NanoGe Spring Meeting 2022
For the next edition, Spring 2022, Prof. Stefaan De Wolf will be one of the organizers. Also, our colleague Michele De Bastiani will be an invited speaker.
