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.
