The role of colloidal plasmonic nanostructures in organic solar cells

"The role of colloidal plasmonic nanostructures in organic solar cells" - A systematic study regarding the competing factors of using core-shell metal plasmonic particles at different interfaces in an organic solar cell well evaluated in Phys. Chem. Chem. Phys,2016, 18, 23155 (open access)

Mukundan ThelakkatWelcome to Applied Functional Polymers group at University of Bayreuth!

We are an interdisciplinary group covering fields of Chemistry, Physics and Material Science.

Our objectives are

  • to design and develop novel tailor made functional molecules, polymers and block copolymers,
  • to combine organics with other functional inorganics to get hybrid systems and
  • to contribute conceptually to solar energy conversion and storage.

Our tools include diverse thin film preparation techniques, self-assembly and device preparation and characterization in addition to elaborate synthetic methods.
