Session 11: Flexible Electronics Applications II

Novel Materials for Fabrication of Photovoltaic and Optical Devices Full Fabricated In Air

4:40 PM - 5:00 PM

The use of particle free silver ink and other novel materials for the development of flexible, high performing photovoltaic and optical devices fully fabricated in air is investigated. Fabrication of perovskite solar cells on flexible and moisture impermeable substrates was demonstrated by printing the silver ink onto the substrate to form a highly conductive, patterned metal mesh electrode. Nanoparticle semiconductor oxide inks are then posteriorly deposited to form functional layers. For optical devices, application of these materials include, smart transparent windows integrating UV and heat barriers, ultra-flat neutral filters and solution-processed anti-reflective coatings. The materials and processing methods implemented contribute toward the ability to process in solution for commercial scale manufacturing of efficient optoelectronic devices in ambient air.
