Project Title: Novel fully solution-processed low-cost and stable solar cells promoting the use of low-carbon energy

Applicant: Dr Wallace Chik-Ho CHOY, The University of Hong Kong

Total Approved Grant: $499,054 (ECF & WWGF: 50/50)

Duration: 1/9/2016 to 28/2/2018

Project Status/Remarks: On-going

The project aims to :

(1) propose a new approach to realize all-solution-processed solar cells with the features of simple solution-based, low temperature (<100degC) and room atmosphere fabrication (i.e. scalable, low cost, no need of expensive, high energy- and carbon- consumed vacuum processes) for promoting low-carbon energy and enhancing the energy efficiency.
(2) demonstrate the operation and working mechanisms of the all-solution-processed solar cells for encouraging the knowledge building of the low-carbon energy to public and advanced knowledge/technology exchange in the field/industry.

Summary of the Findings/Outcomes:
To be available upon completion of the project
