PhD position / Scientist (f/m/d) on Thermal Evaporation Processes for Perovskite Photovoltaics
Part-time 75% - Field of study: electrical engineering, physics, materials science, chemistry


Institut für Mikrostrukturtechnik (IMT)

Ihre Aufgaben

This PhD position will be part of our endeavor to develop industrially relevant processes for perovskite-based tandem photovoltaics within the EU project NEXUS. The position will be embedded in the Taskforce Perovskite Photovoltaics at KIT, which combines the expertise and equipment of several research groups at KIT. For the fabrication and prototyping of thermally evaporated perovskite solar cells, a broad fabrication and characterization platform will be accessible via the Light Technology Institute (LTI) and the Institute of Microstructure Technology (IMT). The focus of your work will be on the following tasks:

  • Development of industrially relevant processes for thermally evaporated perovskite top solar cells for application in perovskite/silicon tandem solar cells.
  • Optimization of various processing methods, e.g. co-evaporation, sequential evaporation and close-space sublimation.
  • Detailed investigation of the optoelectronic and microstructural properties of thermally evaporated perovskite absorber layers.

You will publish your research results in scientific journals and international conferences and also assist in project work and teaching.
The position offers the opportunity for an in-service doctorate.
