Protonic solar cells by sensitization of passive ion-selective polymers with photoacid dyes

Colloquium: Chem. & Biomol. Engineering Colloquium | October 24 | 4-6 p.m. | 180 Tan Hall

 Shane Ardo, University of California, Irvine

 Department of Chemical Engineering

Most electrochemical technologies that operate under ambient conditions require ion-conducting polymer electrolytes. These polymers are passive in that electric bias drives ion migration in the thermodynamically favored direction. Recently, my group engineered two important features into passive ion-selective polymers to introduce the active function of photovoltaic action and demonstration of an...   More >

 Prof. Aaron Fafarman, Drexel University, Chemical Engineering

 Berkeley Nanosciences and Nanoengineering Institute

Perovskite-phase cesium lead iodide (CsPbI3) possess three almost too-good-to-be-true properties for photovoltaic and electroluminesence applications and one Achilles heel: it is not stable under ambient conditions. This talk will provide an introduction to CsPbI3, highlighting our contributions to identifying and understanding some of its remarkable chemical, physical and functional properties....   More >
