Effective Light management in 2D perOvskite absorbeRs for A disruptive tanDem phOtovoltaic technology - ELDORADO

ELDORADO is a project funded by the Italian Ministry of Education, Universities, and Research (MUR) under the PRIN 2022 call. The goal is to develop a new 2D perovskite active layer for use in a solar cell and optimize its integration into a tandem device to increase the energy conversion efficiency of a commercial silicon-based cell.

ELDORADO has three main sequential objectives, the first of which is the development of a 2D perovskite active layer where an efficient 2D or quasi-2D perovskite absorber layer will be optimized for a tandem device with a silicon-based (c-Si) bottom cell. The optimal composition of the perovskite material will be guided by simulations and advanced characterization optimizing the light harvesting and transmission.
The second objective is the development of a suitable layer of silicon nanoparticles to be inserted into the perovskite absorber or at the 2D perovskite/charge transporting layer interfaces to optimize the light management and the efficiency of the device.
The third and last objective is the realization of a tandem proof-of-concept perovskite/c-Si tandem device employing a two-terminal mechanically stacked architecture with power conversion efficiency above the current state of the art.
