Postdoctoral Position on Green Synthesis of MXenes/Perovskite Solar Cell Heterojunctions | ICN2 - Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia

Halide perovskite solar cells (PSCs) have revolutionized the photovoltaic arena providing power conversion efficiencies currently above 25 %, low cost and ease of fabrication. Their combination in tandem architectures with Silicon solar cells will permit building terawatt-scale energy production required for low-carbon economy, shaping the energy future of our society. However, the limited lifetime of PSC is a drawback for the deployment and commercialization of this technology.  

We offer a Postdoctoral contract to work on MXenes and Halide Perovskites. The candidate will work on investigating and developing novel principles for solar-to-electricity and solar-to-fuel conversion using novel Pb-free MHPs/MXene heterojunctions and employing multiple photons in a process that mimics natural photosynthesis. The goal is to develop efficient solar energy convertors based on green, low-cost and abundant materials that offer prospects to be employed on large scale and contribute to global conversion and storage of solar energy. Synthesis of materials, device fabrication and characterization, as well as indoor and outdoor stability analyses of complete devices will be carried out together with data analysis and treatment. The work will be carried out at the Nanostructured Materials for Photovoltaic Energy Group at ICN2.

Main Tasks and responsibilities:

  • Synthesis and functionalization of materials, especially MXenes and Pb-free Halide perovskites (including all inorganic and 2D).
  • Fabrication of functionalized Pb-free MHPs/MXene heterojunctions and multijunctions by solution processing methods.
  • Fabrication of Pb-free MHPs/MXene multijunctions as photocatalyst for H2 generation with high gas rates.
  • Stability analysis of materials and devices following the recently upgraded ISOS protocols and in-situ characterization.
  • Process and analysis of data.
  • Elaboration of periodic reports to keep track of the project progress.
  • Preparation of scientific manuscripts and presentations in workshops or conferences to showcase your research results to the scientific community.
  • Skills on proposal writing.
  • PhD students supervision.

Deadline for applications: March 3rd, 2024
