 Project objective

HY-NANO focuses on one of the current major challenges in Europe: a global transition to a low-carbon society and green economy by 2050. Solar energy can lead a “paradigm shift” in the energy sector with a new low-cost, efficient, and stable technology (3-pillars strategy). Nowadays, low-cost three dimensional (3D) Hybrid Perovskites (HP) solar cells are revolutionizing the photovoltaic scene, with stunning power conversion efficiency beyond 22%. However, poor device stability (due to degradation in contact with water) and dependence on toxic components (lead) substantially hamper their commercialization. HY-NANO aims to realize a new low-cost and efficient hybrid solar technology combining long-term stability with a reduced environmental impact. Design and engineering innovative multi-dimensional hybrid interfaces is the core idea. This will be achieved by: 1. design and characterization of new stable and eco-friendly perovskites structures, with tunable composition and dimensionality ranging from 3D to 2D; 2. exploiting new synergistic functions by combining 3D and 2D perovskites together into novel stable and efficient multi-dimensional interfaces while addressing the interface physics therein; 3. integrating the hybrid interfaces into high efficient and stable device architectures engineered “ad hoc”. In addition, I propose the development of new solar cell encapsulant using metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) functionalized as selective lead receptors to minimize the environmental risks associated with the potential release of lead. My multidisciplinary expertise in advanced material design, cutting-edge photophysical experimental investigations, and solar cell engineering will enable me to successfully target the ambitious goals. HY-NANO is timely and it will generate the new fundamental knowledge that is urgently needed for a scientific and technological breakthrough in materials and devices for near future photovoltaics.
