Welcome to the KAUST Photovoltaics-Laboratory (KPV-LAB) webpage
The KPV-LAB is led by Stefaan De Wolf of the Material Science & Engineering Program and is affiliated to the KAUST Solar Center 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.

Subhashri is from India. She will work on the KPV-LAB Group for the next six months as a visiting student.
14 August, 2022Temperature Dependent Study on Perovskite Solar Cells
In recent work published in ACS, we develop a simple empirical model to acquire the temperature-dependent optical constants of perovskites of an arbitrary band gap using a dataset obtained from spectroscopic ellipsometry.
