ACAP's ANU team have installed a suite of complementary multi-modal, multi-scale device characterisation tools to support next-generation PV device development across the entire ACAP technology portfolio.
The cluster of tools will ensure maximum versatility for studying a range of single junction and tandem/multi-junction devices, including perovskites and earth-abundant materials, silicon and III-V materials, with a machinery set consisting of:
-- Quantum efficiency measurement system
-- Laser beam induced current (LBIC) system
-- Lock-in-thermography system
-- Photoluminescence Quantum Yield (PLQY) imaging module for an existing hyper-spectral microscope
-- Ultrahigh power, multi-wavelength LED light source
The specifications of the system were carefully chosen to allow accurate quantum-efficiency measurements of silicon, III-V, perovskite and multi-junction solar cells over small and large areas.
