PP2 Thin-film, Third generation and Hybrid Devices

Program Package 2 (PP2) encompasses research into a range of next generation cell technologies with the overall goals of demonstrating efficiency above 16% for cells of greater than 1 cm2 area and of demonstrating the feasibility of significantly reduced costs. The current program is divided into tasks to address the key materials groups: organic photovoltaics (OPV), organic-inorganic hybrid cells, “Earth-abundant” inorganic thin-film materials and the hot topic of organic-inorganic perovskites.
