Important concepts to start the course

The main focus of the course “Advanced Materials for Photovoltaic and Light Emitting Applications” is to train students to understand properties of these materials at Molecular level. The course inspires students to go for doctoral studies and find solutions to the energy and environment issues. The student’s benefit from this course, which is a result of 20 years intense research consisting of 25 scientists and deals with:

  • Controlling of photo-physical, photo-chemical and electrochemical properties of metal complexes
  • Chemistry of Sensitizers for dye-sensitized solar cells
  • Creating directionality in the excited state of the sensitizers
  • Tuning of absorption and Emission spectral properties of triplet emitters
  • Controlling quantum yields and excited state lifetime
  • Various characterization techniques and applications

This course has a direct relevance to the society’s need of solving global warming and other pertinent issues
