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.
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)
