2.2.2 Next Generation Organic Photovoltaic Devices and Characterisation
• Leverage investments in new characterisation infrastructure and partnerships within ACAP and externally to develop next generation OPV materials and devices
• Target novel architectures, for enhanced light trapping and charge extraction, modelling and control of optical and electrical fields (particularly in large area monolithic geometries), and charge transport (in a new collaboration with the James Cook University), and complementary junction strategies.
• Utilise the HT-PV-F facility for materials formulations and the CSIRO for processing routines for industrial role-to-role fabrication. Industrial partners will be identified and facilitated through the activities of the CSIRO.
• The activity will target OPV efficiencies of >20%.
